Thanks for doing this Trainor, it's nice to be able to see what's up at home from across the pond.

Power Pool Results Open:

Pool E:
General Strike 4-1
Mephisto 4-1
Tommy Dougls 3-2
Invictus 3-2

Pool F:
Blackfish 4-1
Phoenix 4-1
Mangina 3-2
Grand Trunk 3-2

this is based on the assumption that TDDM beat Demon and that GT beat Too Bad

Quarters I know:

Mephisto 10
Mangina 7

Invictus over Blackfish by one (10-9 I think).

Open semis results:

Mephisto 15
Invictus 3

Phoenix 11
General Strike 9

Invictus was barely able to follow in the first half but Dan Fassina's callahan on a layout D to take half pretty much sealed the deal for Mephisto. Invictus did not score in the second half. Mephisto went something like 11 points in a row.

Finals:
Open has Phoenix versus Mephisto
Mixed has Onyx versus Chaos
Women has Stella versus Lotus (I think)

Junior had Blackout versus Vortex. I assume Blackout won.

Master, Glum beat Figjam (easily).

The Invictus/Mephisto score seems awefully lobsided... Any details?

Batch said...

Mephisto scored 11 in row to finish them off.

Go figure that the quarterfinals would pit Blackfish against their arch-rivals in Invictus. That pairing will light up a barn-burner every time.

And good for Karma for holding their own in the Open division. I think they earned themselves a nod of respect.

Lastly, I think it was just a matter of time before TFP lost a CUC title. Granted, TFP has always drawn on an exceptionally skilled pool of players, but usually with minimal preparation. Sooner or later, they were bound to run into a team that took the tournament more seriously. I think it's a welcome sign of improvement in the Mixed division to see TFP stumble for a change. No offense intended.
