Update with Results:

We had 8 players entered in today's tournament and a few other players who came to practice...with 6 tables set up we had plenty of space and lots of fun.  Play kicked off with 2 round robin groups of 4:

  • Group 1: Mike, Siva, Pramod, and Mark
  • Group 2: Kedar, Manju, Charlie and Mohan

First and Second in each group advanced to "A" semifinal.  Third and Fourth in each group advanced to "B" semifinal.

Mike, Siva, Kedar, and Manju advanced to A bracket.  Pramod, Mark, Charlie and Mohan advanced to B bracket.

Mike and Kedar met in the A finals, with Mike winning 3-0.

Mohan and Charlie met in the B finals, which was a rematch of an earlier match in the Group 2 round robin in which Mohan won 11-4 in the 5th. But this time Charlie was victorious over Mohan by winning 3-1.

The match results have been processed at USATT league website, and here are the new league ratings for today's participants: (note - these are USATT "league" ratings, not USATT "touranment" ratings)
