We tried something different for this month. We did a 3 game guarantee, double elimination tournament. The idea is that 2 losses will eliminate a team from a tournament as long as they play at least 3 games. One interesting result is that Devil’s Palace (Burak) lost his first 2 games and won his third, allowing him to play another game, which he also won. So, I thought the ability to redeem yourself after a bad start was a cool part of this style of tournament.
The final game between Man City (Pat) and Newcastle United (Bruce) was a lot of fun. Newcastle jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead but in the end, Man City pulled it out 3-2 with 3 second half goals.
All results are below.
