Travis email me his comments about the tournament, "JR, If I recall correctly, there were about 12 players who signed up for the tournament. It was a single elimination style tournament. Unfortunately it was not very well organized and I ended up playing four opponents before Mike (vs opponent unknown) and Gordan vs Lee were finished on their first round! Mike and I played twice in the tournament. We played a 9-14 opening on our first match up to a draw. Then I went on to play the only other remaining player, Lee. I played the red-side of the Single Corner to a win and was paired up with Mike again for the championship game. We played 11-16 24-19 and I was able to score a win on it."
