Quad winner: $50
What are quads: The top four players are placed into their own section (a “quad”), then the next four highest in another section, and so on down the list. The players in each quad play a round robin, one game against each of the players in their section, for a total of three games each. If there is not an even multiple of four players, the lowest section (usually) will have the few extra players and play a three round Swiss tournament rather than a round robin.
Just a quick reminder that we will meet in Orange Park tonight (2nd week in a row) at The Urban Bean Coffee House. The Mandarin spot is being used tonight, but we will return to Belgium Barista next Tuesday.
Per our published training schedule there is no training today. Classes will resume next Sunday February 19th at 1:30. Email us at email@example.com with any questions.
