Rationale for this Project


General Status
  1. Now I’m playing fairly regularly, I’ve resuscitated this “Highlights of the Quarter” section:-
    • NICKO Plate Round 3 (Tuesday 21st May): Played with David, and Tim & Steve, for Mountnessing A and narrowly defeated a very strong Loughton team. The highlight of the quarter.
    • Essex Pairs (Sunday 14th April): Very disappointing. Played with David and got crushed in the qualifiers (26 / 28, 36.7%) and did badly (9 / 13, 49.2%) – though approximately as expected based on our NGS grades – in the Consolation Final.
    • Warboys B Flight (Wednesdays 10th April, 8th May & 12th June): Played with David. Further disappointment (+6, +9, -9 IMPs) – all 3 session slightly below our NGS-rating.
    • ECBA League Division 2 (Tuesdays 16th & 30th April, Thursday 2nd May): Played with David, and Tim & Steve. We lost all 3 matches badly (19-1 twice and 16-4 once), and the team got relegated, not that we care as we weren’t intending to play next year.
    • Mountnessing Bridge Club: Played on 7 Thursdays. A bit up and down, but mostly positive.
  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. Local Points:
    • 34,1436, bagged to date, including 1,175 Blue Points and 98.65 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 just there as far as GPs are concerned, 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 has continued to wobble around about the mid-Q mark.
    • See EBU: NGS for full details of the scheme, and my Summary of Progress to Date8 and previous Status Reports 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, though this hasn’t been updated since October 2017.
  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 April - June 2019
  1. I spent 103 hours in 19Q2 on this Project, or related work (165.75 hours YTD, where for "YTD" - Year to Date - I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2018). That's 160.2% of the planned effort (142.4% YTD). Overall, 17.1% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 9.1% YTD) - as against 10% planned (8.6% YTD).
  2. Otherwise, see “General Status” above.
  3. Progress (if any) in the current quarter can be obtained from the relevant section of my Summary Task List11, and YTD here12.
