Finally I would like to congratulate our top 7 (slash 8, slash 9) in the final standings for our invitational event. The invitational is a year long ranking. Each round you play at deal me in games earns you points. 3 for a win, 2 for a tie, 1 for a loss. At the end the year the top 8 point earners get invited to a special invitational tournament to be held before the first tournament in January. This year, the first tournament in January will be Sunday January 13 at noon. This means the invitational will be Sunday January 13th - time to be determined, but tentatively at 10am.
We have the top 7 decided with Greg Hoover and Leon Anton tied for 8th place. Leon and Greg will have a 1 match play off for the final spot the day of the invitational. The winner will take 8th place, the loser will take a seat and watch everybody else. If there are any no shows from the top 8, we will fill in from there with 9th, 10th, etc.
Your top 8 (slash 9) are:Dan Miller 138 Zach Dobbin 124 Dan Barkon 116 Nick DiJohn 107 Joe Brennan 105 Josh Barkon 97 Dean Harris 96 Leon Anton 89 Greg Hoover 89
The invitational will start with traditional top 8 pairings so in the quarter finals:
1 Dan Miller plays 8 Winner of Anton/Hoover
2 Zach Dobbin play 7 Dean Harris
3 Dan Barkon plays 6 Josh Barkon
4 Nick DiJohn plays 5 Joe Brennan
If there are any no-shows, we just slide everybody up 1 in the standings and adjust accordingly.
I'd like to thank everybody who came out to support Jason at Deal Me In Games this year as he presented a fantastic Vintage environment for us all to enjoy. In all we had 54 unique players in the series in 2018. Hopefully in 2019 we can see each and everyone of you again and then some. Full standings for the invitational are below.
