Bali 3: Finally we start

Thanks to Rodney Lighton & Richard Fleet who spotted some minor errors in the Women's player list (See blog 2). A new version has now been posted.

For those of you who like to watch on BBO we start at 4a.m. UK time. Match 1 is just complete as I write. The women won 20-0 and the open team got 18.77. The new VP scales make split ties near impossible. The second match is at 7.30 and the final one of the day at 10.10. In 2011 these 3 matches brought 42 vps out of 60 in the women's event. I'll be pleased with that today.

In the women's hotel there will be little chance of missing the start of play as there is a musical accompaniment to breakfast which starts at 7.30 and can be heard in all rooms. The centre, grounds and hotels all are hot on security and there are checks galore but all conducted with courtesy and charm.

In the Seniors event there is no English team but there is a Scottish team, the first ever to qualify for a world championship. You can follow their progress at www.SBU.org
