VSL Returns April 26th

Only half the league managed to finish “not last” in season 4, so Luis, Web, Efro, Rich, and Randy will be watching as 12 players compete for the other 5 spots in the league. We’ve assembled quite the slate to play for those invitations too. Check it out:

The details are a bit more complicated, but the format is essentially triple elimination: First we’ll do a double elimination bracket, with 4 byes given to the 4 players who finished last in S4 and 4 qualifications on the line. Then the 8 players who don’t grab one of those spots will play a single elim Last Chance Qualifier for the final spot.

Week 9 Should Be Awesome

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.

Week 8 HYPE!

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!
