Congratulations to socksey, A9 Champion who wins an invite into Season Playoffs.
Great run for runner-up, Tanika!! Great finals, ladies!
A9 took place today with total of 9 players in Session 3: diane, yonay, palladin, supermane, Cinderella, socksey, Tanika, LuckyDice and boilermaker. Almost usual turnout for this new tourney in Session 3, this time bringing players of various levels and experience.
Session 3 was back on TourneyBot and 1st round brought two previous A9 Champs into match that delivered early exit for LuckyDice by diane.Cinderella – player that picked up couple of kibitzer’s eyebrows by tonight performance – took her toll with yonay in second round, making sure that every A9 has at least one upset on board, whereas Tanika offered another one defeating diane by clean sweep (ladies actually decided to take it all in one single game). socksey and supermane made sure other quarter-finals provide no surprises and secured their spots in next round. After strong performances in semis both Tanika and socksey emerged as finalists entering strong match in 5-pts.
After positional initial game in Finals, second one brought cube into 2 and socksey’s early lead 3-0; Tani returned in next game, only to face cube in next game (with 3-1 into match) and – to take it! Proceeding without redoubling, Tani faced strong progression by socksey in remaining of that game, leading latter lady to win finals with 5-1.
In doing so, socksey won Session 3 of After Nine tourney, becoming A9 Champion and third A9 winner to qualify for Season Playoffs. Today’s A9 Champion will, together with other A9 Champs, wait for future A9 Champions of first season’s 16 weeks in order for them to proceed pursue of A9 Season Champion title in Season Playoffs starting late March 2011. Until then, special thank you for all today’s players and we invite all others to join us and have fun in this new regular weekly FIBS tournament.
