I'm going to go ahead and close the field at 12 teams. If any more teams sign up, I'll start a waitlist, and if enough teams register, I'll raise the field cap.

In an exciting advantaged final, Arcadia A with the advantage defeated La Jolla A 365-360, after multiple protests. Congratulations to Arcadia A for winning TWAIN XIII, and thanks to all the teams that came out today. I'd also like to thank our moderators and scorekeepers today: Ezra Berger, Joseph Gorelik, Mik Larsen, Ryan Leou, Priyank Mehta, Craig Messner, Ben Morris, Justin Su, and Sam Winikow.

In addition, Arcadia, La Jolla, and Torrey Pines each qualified a team to PACE NSC, congratulations!

On the stats I believe Kevin J from Torrey Pines should be Thor Bjornson.
