Rationale for this Project


General Status
  1. Highlights of the Quarter:-
    • NICKO Round 1 (Thursday 5th December): Played with David, and Colin & Peter, for Mountnessing A. Won by 10 IMPs, but against a rather weak team. 1 GP gained.
    • ECATS CiN SIMS (Monday 11th November): Played with Linda. Gained 431 LPs.
    • Mountnessing Bridge Club: Played on 9 Thursdays with David. Pretty average.
    • Mayflower Bridge Club: Played on 11 Tuesdays with David and Linda. Again, pretty average.
    • Hutton Bridge Club: Played on 7 Mondays with Linda and Colin. Very successful.
  2. Statistics: by partner and club-category can be obtained by following these links – for the last quarter and to date.
  3. Results: Follow this link. Further information can be found from my Bridge Page5.
  4. Master Points:
    • 35,6706, bagged to date, including 1,191 Blue Points and 105.39 Green Points.
    • That makes me a National Master. My next milestone7 will be to achieve Premier National Master status (40,000 LPs, including 100 GPs) – so comfortably there as far as GPs are concerned, but still a long way to go for local points.
  5. EBU Grading:
    • Dropped down to a Q at the start of the quarter, but rose back up to a K, comfortably so at the end of the quarter.
    • See EBU: NGS for full details of the scheme, and previous Status Reports and my Summary of Progress to Date8 for my detailed meanderings over time.
  6. Summary of Progress to Date: I’ve hived off the history to a Summary of Progress to Date9 document.
  7. Further Details: of time expenditure against task are given below, extracted from the relevant version of my Summary Task List10 (which is regularly updated between Quarterly Status Reports).

Summary of Progress during October - December 2019
  1. I spent 174.75 hours in 19Q4 on this Project, or related work (174.75 hours YTD, where for "YTD" - Year to Date - I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2019). That's 90% of the planned effort (90% YTD). Overall, 25.8% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 25.8% YTD) - as against 25% planned (25% YTD).
  2. Progress (if any) in the current quarter can be obtained from the relevant section of my Summary Task List11, and YTD here12.
