The Tel Aviv Scrabble® Club

Club Director: Evan Cohen

Season 22 - Playoff Mini-tourney - 19.2.2010

What a day! Elisheva hosted us beautifully, and 20 players battled for division titles in the Season 22 playoffs. The winner in Zyzzyva would earn a ticket into Madoqua, the winner in Madoqua would spend the next season in Aardvark, and the winner in Aardvark would take the club championships.

In Aardvark, Evan took the title in straight sets, with Ma'or finishing second (with a single loss, to Evan). Strange occurrence, though. Omri, with only a single win, had a plus differential :)

In Madoqua, Tova managed to win on differential, and will join her husband, Ya'ir, in Aardvark next season. Runner-up Mona missed the title on spread.

In Zyzzyva, Raquelle stepped in to fill in for the absent Agi, and won the event. Since she's already a Madoqua, the runner-up, Linda, will get the ticket into Madoqua. Linda took second place, ahead of Julie by only 31 points on spread, and ahead of Charlotte in 4th by not much more.

The highest score of the day: Maureen's 557.

Well done, all! See you in Season 23 :)
