Details

The second Pinabler Tour finals were held on July 8th at 8pm at Red Zone in Fairfax.  We had 7 participants due to a last minute no-show.  Also, based on feedback and length of time the finals took to complete, we determined that keeping the field at 8 players will be best moving forward.  Once he surpass 40 qualifiers we will consider expanding the field to 12 players with top 4 receiving a bye.

Some fun notes regarding the tournament. 

  • Austin and Paul played a tie-breaker game on The Walking Dead to determine seed 1 and 2 since they were completely tied in all 5 games during qualifying.
  • Group 2 in the semi-finals went to a 3-way playoff tie-breaker between Austin, Edan and Kevin to determine which two players advanced.  Edan didn't make the cut.
  • The final ball on the final game of AC/DC determined whether Austin or David Horner would win.  Austin had 53.5 million and David had 61.6 million, with Kevin playing the last ball starting at around 30 million.  If Kevin doesn't beat Austin, then Austin and David play a tie-breaker for first place. If Kevin beats Austin, David wins, if he beats David, Austin wins.  At around 52 million, Kevin missed a 20+million cannon jackpot shot and ended up just shy of David at nearly 60 million.  What a close finish!
