The State of the Game

Haven’t seen you guys in a while, but lots going on!

The California Open was just announced and it’s taking place at the Parc 55 hotel in downtown San Francisco, on Dec 18-20. I’m also directing the next Berkeley tournament on November 1st – contact me (Cesar Del Solar) via Facebook or by emailing Scrabble TV Live if you want to play! I also just won the last San Jose tournament this past weekend, making it two in a row. Had to get very lucky and beat Jesse by almost 200 points to win the tournament; second place was only 30 spread points behind.

The World Scrabble Championship is taking place next week in Perth, Australia, starting on November 4th. A few of our good friends will be playing, and we’ll keep you up to date on the progress of the tournament.

Scrabble TV Live will also be at the New Orleans Crescent City Cup on MLK Weekend next year – January 16-18. Photos, reports, and more coming soon.

Finally, I will be giving a talk on Scrabble at Nerd Nite East Bay on Monday 11/30/2015 in downtown Oakland. Doors open at 7pm then lectures begin at 8. I’ll be the second speaker. This is a fun event in which three lecturers talk on a variety of nerdy topics, interspersed with drinks and food. A friend of mine from college is the organizer, and he asked me to talk about Scrabble. Anyone in the area is welcome to come check it out! It costs $10 and is 21+.
