So a pretty good weekend as the playoff picture is getting ever closer to being decided and should be locked in by the end of day on Saturday barring any major upsets in the final weekend. There is still positioning as far as the DCC and QT to be decided though in the final two weeks.
T Bar all but clinched the top spot in this flight as they beat Hackberry this past weekend. Hackberry has an outside chance at a wildcard but they would have to sweep their final two matches and they would still need some help from other teams. Team Bob had a close victory but keeps qualifying more and more players for the playoff run. There is one development I could see happening in this flight that could be dramatic but I will hold off on making that prediction until it happens...
Looks like the MOW occurs in our flight again as Garland takes on Brookhaven/Bartlett for a claim for 1st place in this flight. A win would guarantee Garland a spot in the DCC since all other teams in this flight would have two losses. Of course I am cheering for that result. Go GTC!!! We made it through Stonebridge in a tight match last weekend but now sit with them hoping to rack up some style points this weekend and await the outcome of the MOW.
This flight heated up as the Village took out LBH/Hicks this weekend and now it is a three team race between those two and Brookhaven/Pearlman. They all play each other over the next two weeks. LBH has HP/Harrigan which will not be easy followed up by BH/Pearlman so they could move up to first or drop out entirely. The Village has BH and then JCC so I like their chances to split those matches. I want to make a prediction on this but it is just too damn confusing. If I have to make a wager I am putting my money on BH and the Village to come out with the 1st and 2nd spots here. Not sure why I have picked the Village in the past and they have let me down so I am due on this pick. Most likely whoever finishes 3rd will not have strong enough numbers to get a wild card spot.
ZZZZZZZZZZZ. This flight is just as boring as flight A now. I guess the only mystery is how many more players Eddie can get DQ'ed in two weeks. It is too bad the big final week showdown will not decide anything more than seeding in a round robin tourney which I can't see being advantageous to anyone. I did hear Eddie had a rough go at the Plano Open as he had a set lead and up 5-1, 40-love and somehow lost the 2nd set and the 3rd set. Ouch!
