I'm in San Diego playing a regional tournament. They seed pairs to ensure that the top pairs are spread across the field, so that no one has too hard or too easy a set of opponents and to avoid having the top pairs all comparing against each other, while weaker pairs get an easier path to a good score by getting to compare against a weaker field. In most tournaments (at least on this side of the country), the seeded tables are, in order, 3, 9, and 13.

Today, for the first time at a regional, the director assigned my partner and me to Table 9, which is equivalent to being seeded between 5th and 8th in the two-section event. I've thought for a while that my game's been improving but it's nice to have confirmation that other people think so as well. --Bob

I hope Table 9 has better luck than Chair 9.
