Deal Me In Games January 13, 2019 1st of 2019 and invitational

Sunday January 13th is going to be a big day for Vintage in Boyertown. Starting at 10 am we have our 2nd annual Vintage Invitational. As the name suggests, this is an invite only tournament (no way, an invitational you need an invite to?!?). This tournament will start at 10 am and go until its finished. 1st place winner will walk away with a Mishra's workshop!!!!

The following players have earned their top 8 invitation by being the highest point earners in our 2018 series:

1 Dan Miller 138
2 Zach Dobbin 124
3 Dan Barkon 116
4 Nick DiJohn 107
5 Joe Brennan 105
6 Josh Barkon 97
7 Dean Harris 96
8 Leon Anton 89*
8 Greg Hoover 89*

Greg and Leon will have a win-and-in tie breaker between now and the start of the tournament. Best of 3 Vintage match with the winner getting the invite to last place. This tournament will be top 8 style. This means single elimination. Our round 1 matches are:

Dan Miller vs winner of Greg/Leon
Zach Dobbin vs Dean Harris
Dan Barkon vs Josh Barkon
Nick DiJohn vs Joe Brennan

Anybody still playing in the invitational when our January tournament starts will simply receive a bye for that round.

Then starting at NOON on Sunday, January 13 we have our monthly store tournament.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING CHANGES TO PRIZES
***Starting with our January tournament, all prize payouts will be in cash. That's right, you walk in with cash for an entry fee and cards to play and walk out with cold hard cash in hand. Payouts will be based on attendance. The entry fee remains at $35. $5 from each entrant each and every month goes towards to the end of year invitational prizes (like 2018 we had a mishra's workshop and underground sea for 1st and 2nd). $5 towards the host store and $25 per person goes towards the prize pool. 100% of prize pool payout goes towards top 8 (depending on attendance, may be top 4).

Because this is a cash payout, please bring cash for the entry fee.

A few points of interest:

  1. If anybody in the top 8 cannot make it, we simply shift the list up 1. This means if one of the top 1-7 cannot make it, Greg and Leon are both in as they are tied. If 2 cannot make it, Greg, Leon and Jason Beaupre are all in. etc. Each player simply bumps up a slot and we adjust the first round pairings accordingly

  2. Points are reset for 2019. We are all at 0 going into Sunday January 13th.

  3. The invitational rounds do not count towards the 2019 point totals.
