Season 20 - Playoff Mini-Tourney - 20.2.09

Well, Season #20 is over. The stormy weather was ideal for a little Scrabble tourney.

Season #20 was the last season with two divisions, so the playoffs were a bit funny, as we had to form three divisions after the playoffs. The top 6 Aardvarks played a Round Robin. The lowest Aardvarks (including the under 33%) and the top ranked Zyzzyva played an 8-player 5-round Swiss tournament. The winner remains in or joins Aardvark next season, and the remaining players will play Season #21 in Madoqua.

In Aardvark, Evan managed to win all 5 games, taking the title. Naomi finished second, with Omri right behind her.

In Zyzzyva, Ma'or won all 5 games, securing his spot in Aardvark in Season #21. Runner-up, Michelle, who finished #1 in the division after Season #20, will also be in Aardvark in Season #21. The remaining players will have the opportunity to compete for an Aardvark spot at the end of Season #21.
