Would have liked to make the trip, but can't justify a 12 hour drive for a $10 tournament.

But then again ... mo money, mo problems .. right?

I will get bigger once my extension if built, when I can support more people I'll raise the entry fee.

I unfortunately will not be able to make it. Stubbed my toe yesterday badly and am hobbling around in pain. Spending a day on my feet sounds like torture. Looking forward to hearing how the new format goes, I think it will be a success.

Adam! Great job with today's tournament. You and your wife are terrific hosts. I enjoyed playing this format and had fun despite my early exit.

I'm curious to know some of the parameters of this new tournament software. For example, are the pairings totally random or are there checks and balances to keep you from playing the same person twice, and/or the same game twice. How much flexibility do you have?

Indeed, had a great time. The pinball, chance to chat and the food were all excellent.

I'm sorry I had to leave before the beans had a chance to work, though.

Thanks guys!!!

The new format did a great job of keeping things moving, and having the machine selection done automatically also meant no searching around for people you didn't know. Just go to the machine and odds are the other person waiting there will be your opponent :)

Big thanks to Adam and Denise for hosting. It's a lot of work to have that many people in your house for that long.

Thanks to everyone who attend the first annual (bi-annual?) Brawl for All!

We had 36 attendees for the event and I think it was a huge success. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the fast pace of the tournament, and within 5 hours every single player got to play 16 matches on 16 different machines against 16 different people.

Going forward TOPL will be switching it’s playoffs to this format, so TOPL members can look forward to playing this format in the future.

In the A Division after 16 rounds there was a 6 way tie for 4 spots between:

Adam Becker
Phil Brinbaum
Les Kowal
Ciaran Bernard
Sean Oneil
Charles Blaquiere

After a 1 game tie break on Twilight Zone the finalists were:

Adam
Phil
Sean
Charles

Are hard fought 5 and 6th place for Les and Ciaran, Ciaran being one of the youngest participants and going 11-5 throughout the tournament.

In the end of the final 3 games the winners in the A Division who split a $360 prize pool were:

Phil
Adam
Sean
Charles

Congrats to our winners



In the B division, first and foremost we have to thank our sponsors for providing the prizes that we gave away.

Had a blast at this event. The format was great and allowed for lots of pinball in a short period of time. Looking forward to future events like this. Thanks you Adam and Denise for being such wonderful hosts and making the afternoon extremely enjoyable.
