The field for Richard is now closed and capped at nine (9) teams. A tenth team may register at this point only if they are able to provide a competent moderator.

Congratulations to NoHo (7 - 1), who won a one-game final, 350 - 190, against Jonathan, Jason, P.C., and Robin A (7 - 1). In third place was Image (7 - 1). The three-way circle-of-death to advance to the finals was broken by means of a PPG tiebreaker.

Top four individuals:
1. Sam Winikow (62.78 PPG)
2. Jason Cheng (57.22 PPG)
3. Justin Nghiem (43.12 PPG)
4. Boyang Jiao (40.00 PPG)

Thank you to all teams who came out to the tournament. The complete stats report can be located at this link.

Thanks for Eddie & PC for pulling this together, to the writers for an enjoyable set, and to Justin, Boyang, and Matt for being great teammates. It was fun to hold a buzzer for the first time in a while.
