The 2016 Irish Scrabble Open Tournament took place on Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th May in the Citywest Hotel, Dublin.

For a summary of the weekend, the final standings, and the detailed event analysis, click the 'Read More' link.

We had a great weekend with some new faces (always very welcome!) and some nail-biting games. We missed our usual evening activities (meal, card playing, drinks and craic) because Bruce Springsteen was playing in Dublin that weekend - this meant that accommodation coming up to the event was like gold dust, and nobody was staying in the hotel. Ah well - next time!

The final standings after Round 14 are shown here, or see the detailed event analysis. Enjoy!
