Check Mate! 3 Player Teams 2/1/2020

We would like to thank Josh Soulliere and Bo's Bar & Billiards for hosting this event.

Thank you to all the teams who came by to try out our newly-modified 3 Player Team format, and to celebrate my Dad's 90th Birthday, a milestone!!

We had some long, strategic matches with highly-skilled players.

The fierceness of the players, combined with the camaraderie made it a day to remember what it's like to mix the strategy of Chess and the excitement of Billiards.

We paid out 100% and added money!

In the end, two teams opted for a split.

This format in particular was new and interesting and we are happy we tried it.

We may be trying it again before season's end with some minor adjustments.

Payouts 1st Co-Champions - Team Rich Senna / Team Joe Coley - $1310 + $660 ($1970) 3rd - Team Keith Platt - $150

Over $2100 back to the players!!

As always, 100% Payback on the Auction!
