Christmas Classic in Mississauga
- This is to start a story of an impromptu tournament held in Mississauga on Dec.27/09
Six participants partook in the festivities..
Shaun Redmond and his girlfriend Diana from Victoria B.C.
Bruce Turner From Lima Peru
Bernie Kunzler From Kitchener
Alex Turner From Kitchener
Dave Kraehling from Mississauga...
Two boards were used in the tournament, Coleco and Powerplay 2.
The action started around 3:30pm and ended at 7:30pm a short and sweet get together.
The action was fast and furious, with somereal barn burners. After the round-robin two players had the identical rank forcing a play-off to decide who finished higher. Bruce Turner and Shaun Redmond had 4 wins 5 losses and 1 tie with a +3 goal differential. Both had beat each other head to head and they both beat each other by 3 goals.
The play-off game was exciting right down to the last shot of the game as Bruce had to hold on to win 3-2 and claim 3rd place with Shaun taking 4th place.
Dave took 1st with only surrendering a tie to his arch rival Bernie. Bernie surrendered 2 ties which placed him in second
In 5th place was Diana (who's excuse was partying too heavy the night before). Alex pulled up the bottom.
