U21 Round Robin Scores for Match 2 of 2nd Day
In the second match on Monday, the Das and Soukup teams sat in the same directions at both tables, so they effectively did not play the match. Their score from the first half of the match (played on Sunday) has been scored using the 8 board Victory Point scale, and each team was penalized 5 VPs for sitting in the wrong direction. The 5 VP penalty has been subtracted from the score assigned to these two teams for their match against each other, so effectively there were 10 total VPs assigned for that match.
