Top Table Fridays: First Run

Hi, Our Friday night experiment with Top Table went pretty well. Most people enjoyed the opportunity to play a lot of different people that they never get to play. The lower seeded players were delighted to have the chance to beat someone above them in one game. (I lost a lot, thank you.) We didn’t structure the table order real clear. Maybe I will put numbers on tables. The best players should have started on the bottom tables and worked their way up. We allowed late entrees to pop in. Nobody wanted to stop their game until it was finished, which left people standing around waiting for a winner. I started it early at 5:30 since the 4:00 players were already getting tired and the room wasn’t crowded with new people coming. Almost everyone joined in except Frank and others hadn’t warmed up yet and weren’t ready for competition. We will keep it going and advertise it better. The summer at the club might start becoming a bit quiet. Thanks, James Kahn

    it sounds interesting, but can you explain how it works? do we play just one game and the winners move one way and the go the other way. I’d like to try.
