ACF Fall @ Chicago Results

Post by nafai »

Congratulations to Illinois A (Mike, Kelly, Micah, Tom) for winning the midwestern section of the ACF Fall tournament. Apparently, they came back from a one game deficit to beat Michigan A (Adam, Andy, Dave, Craig) in the finals.

A big thank you to all the people who helped out in running this tournament.

Michigan A

Michigan C

To expand: Illinois A lost the final game of the playoff round robin to Michigan A, after which the two teams advanced to an ACF-style finals in which Michigan was up one game. Illinois won the next game by 10 to stay alive, and then convincingly won the deciding game (something like 500-100) to win the tournament. Congratulations to Mike Sorice and his teammates for a fine performance, and to Adam Kemezis and his teammates for a well-played tournament.

Just a quick reminder - games have yet to be played in Knoxville. Please refrain from discussing questions until the end of Sunday night.

iirc, Sorice also got into a car accident on the way to the tournament. Saturday must have been an interesting day for him.
