We finally had our first Dealer's Choice week and Dan Bertzyk decided on CTP week. His card was an extreme example of what this format is all about. There was a 13 throw differential between two people on the card and they both ended up with 7 CTP's. That is an interesting phenomenon!
Another successful CTP week spreading some payout to everyone who played. Some might say that CTP week is slightly socialist . . well I am ok with that because it truly gives everyone a chance to get some money back even if they had a rough week. At least with this format compared to "sharing the wealth" in a socialist government you still need to earn your payout.
We also had three aces this week . . . a record for any of my leagues. Mike Finley hit #6, Jeromy Morgan hit #15 (In the same group as Mike Finley), and Greg Weber hit #16. Unfortunately the wealth was spread so thin, each of these guys only got $12 for their aces. It's better than a kick in the groin but I know they might all have been disappointed to not have won the whole ace pool on their own. Either way I know they are happy to get some cash back.
In Open we had Dave Olson with a solid (-13), Scott Slauson (-12), Joel Kamoske and Mike Finley (-11). On the payout side the top winners were Mike Finley ($9.00), Scott Slauson and Joel Kamoske ($5.50), and Dave Olson and Brad Weber at ($4.50).
In Intermediate I had a (-12), followed by Brian Ish (-10), Greg Klein (-9), Aaron Schultz had a (-8) and Antonio Cerillio and Mike Wright with (-7). In payout we had me winning ($8.50), Dan Bertzyk, Antonio Cerillio, Pat Brah and Brian Ish winning ($4.50)
In Recreational we saw Chris Daskam continue his rapid improvement with a (-8), Nick Williams had a (-7), Matt Walczak had a (-5), and Mark Olver and Greg Weber had a (-4). In Payout we saw Keegan Wenzler win ($6.00), Chris Daskam, Shaun Kirchner, and Matt Walczak each ended up with ($5.50), and Greg Weber, Colin Huff, Zach Walczak, and Brian Williams end up with ($4.50) while Nick Williams basically got his ($4.00) back.
