Update with Results:

Today we had 15 total entries in our June 2014 monthly tournament.  The format consisted of an initial round robin stage with 3 groups of 5 with each group using 2 tables.  The top 3 finishers in each group advanced to a 9-player single elimination.  Here are the groups in order of seeding:

  • Group A: Scott, Siva, Kedar, Mark, Megha
  • Group B: Don, William, Charlie, Pramod, Mia
  • Group C: Parimal, Mike, Shelby, Mohan, Sumera

The winners of the groups are:

  • Group A: Scott; Group B: Don; Group C: Mike

Scott, Siva, and Kedar advanced out of Group A.  Don, William and Charlie advanced out of Group B.  Parimal, Mike, and Shelby advanced, although Shelby did not play so Mohan advanced.

So, for the 9-player Single Elimination, Charlie and Mohan played for the 8th quarterfinal spot.  Charlie won 3-1 to advance.  The quarterfinals looked like this:

Quarterfinals:  Scott v. Charlie, Kedar v. William, Mike v. Parimal, and Don v. Siva.

  • Scott, Kedar, Parimal, and Don advanced to Semis:

Semifinals:  Scott v. Kedar, Parimal v. Don

  • Scott def. Kedar, 3-0.  Don def. Parimal, 3-1.

Finals:  Scott def. Don, 3-1.

  • Champion: Scott Barone
  • Runner Up: Don Jackson

Congratulations to Scott and Don!  Also, congratulations to Kedar and Parimal for advancing to semifinals.

The club took in $85 in total entries.  Club share is $25, with $60 in prize money.  Scott claimed $30 for first place and donated $10 back to club.  Don won $20 for second place.  Because Parimal and Kedar did not play for 3rd place, the club retained the $10 prize for third place.

Here is the breakdown of the financial results:

  • Total Entries:  +$85
  • Total Prizes given: -$50
  • Total Donations: +$20
  • Total Profit: +55
