Congrats to Katrina, Shannon, and Georgia for going undefeated in last night’s nemesis tournament! We had a solid turnout with 8 teams for the double elim bracket. For future tournaments, we will use a weighted tier system based on previous performance for team drawings; I did this way back in the early days and it worked well. Hope everyone had a good time!
We had a solid turnout for our first tournament of 2015, with enough people to field 9 teams. Congrats to the 1st place finishers Tim Richardson, Lee West, and myself, who beat the runner-ups Dingess, David, and Zamir in the championship game. Team Dingess/David/Zamir took the long path through the bracket, having lost in the first round, but won 4 straight to play in the championship. Troy, Andy Hu, and Laura’s team won 3 straight to play in the winners bracket championship, but lost their final 2 games to fall to 3rd overall. And in fourth place is Brandon C, Alvina, and Joe M. Congrats to Brandon for a dominating performance (9.0+ cups per game average, 3 game winning shots, and 2 10+ cup games).
