According to the other thread (link here), the six players in group 2 are:
  • nullve
  • cherdano
  • shyams
  • stephen tu
  • mkgnao
  • antonylee

The format is a 16-board IMP format with the "non-best hand" option.

I thought I will set up two challenges today with a hope to play this weekend (or on Monday evening).

So I have chosen to challenge antonylee and stephen tu today. If either of you does not wish to play this weekend (the challenges lapse on 27th Sep afternoon UK time), please reject it on BBO and/or post here.

If the two matches go thru this weekend, I'll be happy to schedule/accept other challenges around next weekend.

Before reading shyams's post, I challenged antonylee as well. If someone's willing to this weekend, please challenge me.

You have an option to cancel a challenge before it has been accepted by antonylee if you so desire. You could then probably initiate a challenge to the other two people in the group.

However, it's up to you and others to decide.

Three of my five matches are complete.

I have played my set of the boards in the fourth match; I'm waiting for mkgnao to finish playing the boards so that the results can be determined.

Today, I have sent an invite to cherdano. If the timing is not suitable, please cancel the invitation and let me know a convenient time.

So the only matches pending in the group are mkgnao vs. three of us.

My challenge with mkgnao was accepted and I have played all my boards; now I'm waiting for the other side to complete their set. Done!

I have to say, mkgnao was extremely unlucky in the set against me.
I made 7H with a trump suit of A9xxx opposite KT8x - mkgnao played in 6H. I made 3N with a club suit of xx opposite xxx. GIB lead a high club from AKJxx but switched at trick two. A push in either of those would have been enough for mkgnao to qualify.
