The finals are this Wednesday, April 6th, at 7:30 PM. Location is Main Street Amusements as always. The finals are played in groups of 4 using the PAPA format, explained below from the PAPA Website.
The A-Division finals are as follows 1. Matt Peace, 2. Keith Alyea, 3. Tommy Skinner, and 4. Tom Vandenberg.
The B-Division Finals are as follows 1. Dan St. John, 2. Dan Issaacson, 3. Craig Farner, and 4. Ron Languell.
Bob Skinner was initially qualified in B-Division, but will not be able to attend finals this month so Ron has been bumped up into that position. If anyone has any questions please let me know. The finals are set up on Match Play Events, and both A and B Divisions links are below. Matt and Dan. St. John are “driving the bus” with 1st choice of game selection all night in their divisions, and the games must be chosen from the March Super-Selfie bank of games. Good luck to everyone playing, and help spread the word if you see other players there in the month of April about joining selfie-league.
“PAPA-Style Final Format:
All finalists will be divided into groups of four players based on standard seeding procedures. Each group will play three separate four-player games, each on a different machine from among those designated for that division. Each four-player game will be scored as follows:
- 1st = 4 points
- 2nd = 2 points
- 3rd = 1 point
- 4th = 0 points
Three-player games will be scored as if a nonexistent fourth player received the 4th place finish (i.e., 1st earns 4 points, 2nd earns 2, and last earns 1).
The highest-seeded player within each group may choose either the machine to be played, or the order of play. If the highest-seeded player chooses order of play, the remaining players may choose their order, in descending order of seeding, and choice of machine then goes to the next highest-seeded player in the group. Conversely, if the highest-seeded player chooses the machine to be played, then the next highest-seeded player chooses the order of play, with the remaining players choosing order of play in decreasing order of seeding.
Note that the original seeding of players when entering the final rounds from qualifying is used in every round. At no time does a player’s seeding change from round to round; therefore the advantage of qualifying in first place can be significant.
No group may select a machine which has already been selected by a group in the same round, nor may they choose a machine on which they have already played in that round (unless machine malfunctions have made this unavoidable; tournament officials may choose to provide additional or substitute machines, however). If the machine selected is currently being played by another group in a previous round of play, the group may wait for that round of play to be completed. For example, if one group is playing a given machine as their first machine, a different group may choose to wait for it as their second machine.
When all three games have been completed by a group, each player will have a point total for that rounds in their division. Two players will advance from each group to the following round.”
