This solves the Team 18 problem. I figure we can take any one of the five from that team that wants to join us.

EDIT: From what I'm given to understand, we will be playing with Matt Laird and a mystery guest.

Congratulations to Colby, Greg, Brian, and Jeremy for another win--they were a terrific team and deserving winners.

This was an enjoyable tournament. Nine rounds seemed a bit short, but hey, after Saturday, I wasn't exactly chomping at the bit to play more rounds and there was a Fine Arts thing to get started up, so...the ending time was fine with me. Certainly, the tournament had a distinct feel to it which should be expected and welcomed. At times this straddled the edge of vanity, but on the whole, great experience.

Here are the stats. Note that in the playoffs we carried over the prelim result for the other team that was in your prelim bracket, explaining why Burnett cleared the field.

I don't know who this "Charlie" is on my team, but he sure looked a lot like Trevor.

Not to mention that those stats don't seem to be very accurate for me, since I got a lot more that one question in the playoffs.

They aren't. I haven't played in a tournament where they were accurate, though, so at least it's consistent with other tournaments.
