The text of this report – apart from some statistics – hasn’t been much changed since end September 2018 as this project is mostly in abeyance. This report is generated automatically.

Rationale for this Project
General Status
  1. The items below relate to mid-2017 and before, when I used to play! They may become more relevant if I return to the game in any capacity.
  2. Statistics: by partner and club-category can be obtained by following these links – for the last quarter of regular play and to date.
  3. Results: Follow this link. Further information can be found from my Bridge Page4.
  4. Local Points:
    • 33,7685, bagged to date, including 1,175 Blue Points and 98.65 Green Points.
    • That makes me a National Master. My next aim – if I play again – will be to achieve Premier National Master status (40,000 LPs, including 100 GPs) – so just there as far as GPs are concerned6, but still a long way to go for local points.
    • I think I had about 5,000 LPs from my student days, but never registered any, more’s the pity.
  5. EBU Grading:
    • My rating continued to decline in 3Q17, and was down to a mid Q by the time I stopped playing.
    • See Link for full details of the scheme, and the summary7 and previous reports for my detailed meanderings over time.
  6. Summary of Progress to Date: I’ve hived off the history to a separate document8.
  7. Further Details: of time expenditure against task are given below, extracted from the relevant version of my Summary Task List9 (which is regularly updated between Quarterly Status Reports).

Summary of Progress during October - December 2018
  1. I spent 20.5 hours in 4Q18 on this Project, or related work (20.5 hours YTD, where for "YTD" - Year to Date - I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2018). That's 78.8% of the planned effort (78.8% YTD). Overall, 3.4% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 3.4% YTD) - as against 3.7% planned (3.7% YTD).
  2. The main item to note for the last quarter was that I did have a couple of games with David. Rather middling, so my grade dropped marginally10, but encouraging in that I managed to re-internalise the Strong Diamond system without too much trouble and managed to play reasonably competently. Also, it was good to reacquaint myself with some on my old cronies.
