The Tel Aviv Scrabble® Club

Club Director: Evan Cohen

Season 21 - Playoff Mini-Tourney - 4.9.2009

Season #21 is over, the first season with three division.

The playoff mini-tournament took place at our usual venue, with 8 players vying for the division title in each division. The winner in Aardvark would earn the Club Championship title. The winner in Madoqua would earn a ticket into Aardvark in addition to the division title. The winner in Zyzzyva would earn a ticket into Madoqua in addition to the division title. If the division winners in Madoqua and Zyzzyva were the overall winners from the regular season (qualifying for the next division automatically), then the runners-up would earn the free ticket.

In Aardvark, Evan managed to win all 5 games, taking his 15th title. Omri, performing better than ever, won 4 games, and took the runner-up position. In Madoqua, Ya'ir, with 4 wins, just managed to squeak past Nancy (better spread) and take the division title. Nancy finished second, also with  4 wins. Ya'ir joins Raz in Aardvark next season. In Zyzzyva, Mona took the title with 4 wins, followed by Gisele, also 4 wins, smaller spread, who will advance to Madoqua with Mona.

Well done, all!
