FWIW, Uday is back (started this month) as VP of BBO.

I got an email from the congress organiser. I don't know how clear Realbridge is that it can't run a three way, but they didn't realise this was the case till Friday hence no standby team. They closed the entry with an even number of teams then a team dropped out on the day.

They are refunding us double our entry fee.

It was not public knowledge.

The fact that Uday rejoined BBO dosn't not negate my original claim.
What is important is the reasons that he originally left.

Note:

1. I was not aware that Uday had rejoined the company
2. I am glad to hear this

Well, that's a good thing.

It's a decent gesture, entry was only £12 so didn't cover my additional costs, but better than nothing and an acknowledgement they should have done better. They will have a standby team if they organise anything else.
