We probably know who our 4 playoff competitors are (though Chris can still tie for a spot by going 2-0 tonight and getting help in the form of a loss by either Rich or Luis), but look how close the battle for last in! If Steve loses then it’s obviously just him, but if Steve beats Chris then all 5 of the other matches feature a player who must win in order to avoid relegation into next season’s play-in tournament.
We will of course play Steve’s match against Chris last, for maximum torture, I mean drama.
We start with the Ochoa v Maher match that was postponed from week 7, but we also have to postpone one match – Pikula v Ochoa – to next week. So we’ll have our normal five matches, but with just one week left after tonight we should have well more than our normal share of drama!
There will be new decklists tomorrow. These will be the final set of the regular season and with everyone scrambling to avoid relegation it should make for quite an exciting show!
