2011 DBA Open Tournament

The 7th annual "Wars of Washington, DC" DBA tournament was held on Saturday, 8 Oct. 2011 (1:00-4:30 p.m.) in conjunction with the Congress of Gamers gaming convention, at the Rockville Senior Center in Rockville, MD.  In a strong field that had four players vying for championship honors, David Schlanger retained his DBV championship with a 4-0 record.  Mike Guth finished second with his Medieval Portugese.  Jon-Michel Seman won "Best First-Timer" honors.  Schlanger took the Mayhem Award with 26 elements, tying him with Ruth Torres for 3rd on the all-time DBV Mayhem list.  A total of 7 generals were killed in the first three rounds, a casualty rate of nearly 50%, which reflected the overall aggressive play.  Book III armies showed best overall, with a 10-6 record.
