Details

The second multi-location Pinabler Tour finals were held on December 11th at VÜK in Bethesda.  We had a record 15 participants thanks to 30 qualifiers.

Some fun notes regarding the tournament. 

  • Dramatic change from October where all the final four players were all in the top 5 seeds.  This time around, seeds 1, 2, 4, 6, and 7 got knocked out in the first round and the finals were made up of seeds 3, 5, 8 and 9.
  • New players stepped up and played well.  Our newest player to the region, FL Ettlin (pronounced like 'NFL' without the 'N') tied for 5th in her first IFPA tournament.
  • There were no tie-breakers throughout the finals.

Thanks goes out to all who played and attempted a qualifying game.  Everyone that plays even one game at one location helps expand the overall field.
