2001 NC State Championship

Posted 12 September 2001 to , by Jeff Soo

September 6–9, Pinehurst, NC

In a battle of former state champions, Paul Scott beat Andy Short in the final of the 2001 North Carolina State Championship. Scott and Short met three times in the draw and process format, Scott winning two of the three games.

The tournament featured an unusual format in which the players were initially divided into three flights. Each flight played a draw and process, a type of double-elimination ladder. But any player with one or two losses in the elimination events could then enter the consolation Egyptian format event, and this was done as a single flight. This gave players the opportunity to move beyond traditional flight divisions, depending on their level of play.

Paul Scott was the Tournament Director.
