Update with Results - Monthly Tournament - June 13, 2015

Today marks LRTTC's 21st monthly tournament since June 2013.  Thanks to everyone who has participated in these events in the past, and especially to the players who made it out to the club today.  The entry fees for these tournaments helps us keep our tables clean, courts surrounded, and nets tight!  

Seven players battled in today's Open Singles Giant Round Robin with 21 matches spread out over 3 tables.  At the outset, Kedar predicted that there would be upsets.  Unfortunately, that upset was almost hauled in by Charlie over Kedar, except Kedar escaped with a win at 12-10 in the 5th and final game.  So, while you want Kedar reading your MRI, you should probably avoid any palm readings he might offer.

There was a familiar battle between Charlie and Mohan.  Mohan took an early lead to go up 2-1, but Charlie rallied to win the final 2 games in a 3-2 victory over Mohan.

Mohan found redemption in a 3-1 victory over Shelby Barone.  On paper, this was the biggest upset of the day since Shelby was rated 263 points higher than Mohan.  Although Mohan came in 6th place, this win earned him 38 rating points, which was the largest gain of the day by anyone.

Charlie's 5th place performance earned him the second highest rating point gain of the day at 35 points.

Louis Vance reeled in two 3-0 wins, but came up just short of a third victory by getting edged out 3-2 by Shelby Barone won the 4th game 16-14 and the final game 11-8.  What a close match!

The final 3 spots came down to melees between Mike, Scott, and Kedar.  Kedar pushed Scott to 5 games but in the end, Scott triumphed 11-6 in 5th game.  Mike unleashed the Long Pips of Nets and Edges on both Scott and Kedar to claim this month's top spot.

Final Places:

  • 1st:  Mike Lauro
  • 2nd: Scott Barone
  • 3rd:  Kedar Jambhekar
  • 4th:  Louis Vance
  • 5th:  Charlie Brooks
  • 6th:  Mohan Reddy
  • 7th:  Shelby Barone

Update with Results and Photos of LRTTC 2015 Spring Closed Giant Round Robin, May 9, 2015

Due to a last minute emergency cancellation, instead of the sanctioned event we held our regularly monthly tournament with an 8 player, 2 group round robin with the top 2 advancing to the Division A semifinals and the bottom 2 advancing to Division B semifinals.

In Division A, Jeff Pratt took 4th place, Kedar Jambhekar 3rd place, Don Jackson 2nd place, and Mike Lauro 1st place.

In Division B, Mark Taylor's emotional exhaustion led to his default to Charlie Brooks for 3rd place. Jim Miller took 1st place by defeating Mohan Ready in the final.

After the singles tournament ended, a number of players teamed up for several competitive and fun doubles matches. We also managed to get some really good group photos to commemorate the festivities of the day.

LRTTC offers congratulations and thanks to everyone who showed up today to support the club even though the sanctioned event was postponed.

Update with Results - Monthly Tournament - April 11, 2015

This Saturday's tournament was LRTTC's 19th monthly tournament since we started hosting them in June 2013. The field of 8 players participated in a giant round robin format guaranteeing 7 matches for everyone. In preparation for next month's USATT-sanctioned tournament, we set up only 4 tables in our normal space with larger than usual court sizes. The layout included full barriers around all the courts, an aisle down the middle, and plenty of seating on either side of the space.

You can view the individual player results online at RatingsCentral.com by following this link: LRTTC Monthly Tournament - April 11, 2015.

The top 3 finishers are:

  • Champion: Mike Lauro
  • Finalist:  Scott Barone
  • 3rd Place:  Kedar Jambhekar
