Notes relative to the Conduct of this Factacular Cup Tournament

  1. Players ranking 33 and 34 at the completion of the Qualifying Round will be allocated to the Factacular Mug competition whereupon both players will proceed directly to the Factacular Mug Final. 
  2. Timing of the Factacular Mug Final may be set to coincide with the timing of the Factacular Cup and Factacular Plate finals.  Factacular Mug finalists will be notified if that is the case and be given the choice to play earlier or wait.
  3. The Tournament Organiser has instructed that the timing of the overall tournament be set to "day-by-day" - subsequent rounds and/or finals to be set to a daily schedule in order to heighten suspense.
  4. If draws occur, this may cause tournament timing to revert to "insta-play" - subsequent rounds and/or finals being sent as soon as previous round and/or final has been decided.

tallyho......

A very rough computation would seem to indicate that, even with some players yet to finish their qualifying round games and others yet to start with approximately 2.5 hours left before expiry, your current ranking of 9th should not vary all that much.

I therefore confidently predict you will be a Factacular Cup competitor.

Best of luck!

FCA:  Correct observation, Allan R. Matthes.  The first seed in the overall tournament has indeed fallen after Round One.

*jmaxg yells in background:  "It's March Madness all over again, I tells ya!!"

FCA:  I'm afraid I don't know what that means.

Allan: Thanks for the (premature) congrats ... not March madness but rather April at Amen Corner. Anyone can challenge early in this tourney especially in the brave new (scoring) world developed by the Doc!

Yeah, sorry about not getting FCA to get the awards up earlier folks.

Ya see, me and the missus caught a leprechaun and so were finally able to get the his n' hers recliners we have been dreaming about.

So, I had a decision to make...... do virtual trophies or go buy real recliners.

Hmmmm........do virtual trophies.....go buy recliners.......virtual trophies......real recliners.

Strangely enough, the decision wasn't all that hard to make.

Anyway, congratulations to Seve, Quiz3000 and rmcmanus for their wins.  And a bloody well done to the runners up.

Observations to make for this tournament?  Well, obviously, the average winning and/or player score took a dive.  But that was to be expected given certain recent changes.  But a win is a win and that's what this tournament is all about.

Other than that, everything was smooth as silk.

So, thank you to all players for your participation and I hope to see you all next month......that's IF I can manage to separate myself from my new recliner.

* just kiddin' :-)

Great win Seve!  Well played!

Also Quiz and macca (possibly the easiest win ever?)

If you mean macca?  Then yes, the first instance of a "no-show" in a final since I have been running it.

But, hey, a win's a win.  The principal of replaying "no-shows in a final" was once toyed with.  But it got dropped pretty quickly when it became obvious that it may involve circular logic, particularly when players get bored and just wander off....LOL.

Anyway, me and FCA, with help from a great friend, have worked out how to apply byes effectively and that has worked a treat!
