End of Season Review Print

Tonight sees the end of the regular season before we hurtle towards Sunday's (That is SUNDAY, John Owens) Playoffs. Let's see what has been happening the divisions since September...

Championship A:

Boomtown Rats lead the way thanks in part to a Wonky's collapse and the fact Josh and Woojae were "too busy at home" a few Wednesdays back. Gentlemen, there is only one thing you should be using your hands for on a Wednesday night! Both Josh and Woojae will be hoping they do at least qualify for the playoffs...there was a rumor circulating that Strokers might have to forfeit tonight's match. The words Mark, Genius and Barnes are not often heard in the same sentence anywhere in Itaewon but...just for once...Mark Barnes, you are a trolling genius! Pinorea could catch the Rats as they play each other on the last night. Strokers and Wonky's seem destined to complete the top 4. Wonky's once again will finish as the "winningest" team but they just simply refuse to thrash anyone. They are just simply too nice. Speaking of too nice, Finch's Birds and Sam's Power will be battling for who finishes 5th and gets a bye on Sunday, which will be er...nice. Marvelous are simply marvelous at losing 7-8.

Championship B:

Ladies and Gentlemen, a moment's silence shall now be observed for Sin Bin Bombadeers...

That's long enough...King Pub are already destroying every team in their path and have already claimed top spot and, barring a miracle, will also claim the Ratings Division title as well. The Pain in the Hole, Bell Endz and a team still living off one night of glory look evenly matched. Black Hole and Kozels are playing for pride and I have only just realized how Shih Tzu are! One real win all season! And that against a team who had 5 forfeits that night. Still better than Dabu's team though, who simply crumbled, disintegrated and disbanded after a cold hard stare from Sunny...allegedly!

Championship C:

JJ's 86 match winning streak is getting ridiculous. No pressure for the playoffs but, if you guys don't win, you'll be known as the greatest IPL bottlers in history. Sweet Life have offered a hint of pressure to the JJ-Juggernaut. Frigates are 3rd, a mere 112 points behind the leaders despite having taken 0 points from 2 matches this season. The C _ _ _ Tips (sorry, one too many blanks there, must edit) are 4th, The Fools in the Pool are 5th and Ballet-Sticks 6th but all eyes will be on the clash at the bottom tonight. Yes, despite what I said last time, Pheasants have a chance to make the the greatest comeback in IPL history. On my last review, they were 56 points behind Scandal. 7 weeks later and an 11-4 win tonight would take them to the promised land of...7th. You can do it, Phillies!

Have a good evening and good luck to all for the playoffs (unless you play my team, of course)

The end of season blind draw doubles trophy tournament will be held Saturday, November 11th. It will be double-elimination, and the format will be scotch doubles.

Pairings will be decided using a blind draw, with one from the top half of the ratings, and one from the lower half of the ratings. It is absolutely free to any player who has played at least 5 matches (5 separate weeks) this season. Trophies will be awarded at the banquet to the top three teams in the tournament.

Signups will take place from 3:00-0 3:45 at Wolfhound. The tournament will start as close to 4:00 pm as possible. Remember that it is a doubles tournament, so we need to have an even number of players. If there is an odd number of players signed up, the last person to register will not be able to play, unless they can muster up one more player or convince someone else to drop out.

The tournament will be played at Wolfhound and JJ's.

I hope to have a big turnout!

Charity Tournament and Season Review Print

Most of you, I'm sure, will be missing your weekly visit to the bars of Itaewon over the Chuseok period. Fear not, this coming Sunday will see Scrooge Pub host a pool tournament to raise money for victims of the recent Mexican Earthquake. I have a friend whose region was very badly hit and through her I have been given a worthy charity to support. Money raised by the tournament will help volunteers educate children whose school was destroyed by the quake. While volunteers help the children, the parents will help reconstruct the school. If you'd like attend or make a contribution please come and find me at Scrooge on Sunday or next Wednesday at Shenanigans and Sin Bin. There will hopefully be a small raffle on Sunday, and entry fee, a buy back in fee and a Calcutta draw. There will of course be prizes for the winners but the main aim of the event is to have fun and raise some money.

When: Sunday 8th October

Time: 4:00pm sign ups in Scrooge

Entry: Open to all and 10,000won fee + 5,000won buy back in.

Bars: Scrooge and Dolce Vita

This event has nothing to do with the pool league and as such all players (league members or not) are welcome to participate. Many thanks to Kelly, SK, Jim and YJ for their kind support.

I think it is also about time we had a review of the season so far, don't you? Here we go then...

Championship A:

The defending champions, Pinoy/Korean Mafia (now we have cute little flags, we know where you're really from!) currently lead the way from The Rats (who have a game in hand) with the Super Soakers (sounds like a water pistol to me!) a little off the pace in 3rd. Pinoy took a while to get going this season but have steadily moved through the gears after a 15-0 win in week 4. The Dirty Rats (that's what Wonky's think anyway!) have been impressive aside from a sleepy start against the Triangles. The SS (Super Strokers, not the paramilitary wing of Adolf's party...this SS's weapon of choice is a pool cue) have been on the slide in recent weeks. Wonky's started the season exceptionally well and got into the 'winning every week but not destroying teams' habit of last season until they went and won 15-0 then lost 4-11. The 11-4 loss to Super Power was hard to explain until the rest of the league woke up to the fact that it was caused by a celebrity player. Ladies and gentlemen, we have Jerry Seinfeld in the league! Shhh though, he spelled his name wrongly, so it may not be the real Jerry (I wonder who it could be?). Three new additions have certainly made Super Power a lot more dangerous and Angry Birds have been improving too which leaves Marvelous...who should really be called Mediocre by now, bringing up the rear.

Championship B:

This is all about King Pub Seoul, the winningest team of the season so far (along with the Championship C leaders) . Not looking especially dangerous on paper but lethal on baize, this team has already beaten 2 Championship A sides, including the Super Chokers. JJ's the Pain have won 5 matches in a row 8-7, so that is the bar to head to for excitement. The only other team to follow in this division at the moment is B & B Bells Boyz which sounds like a K-Pop rap group but is in fact a middle aged collection of IPL regulars who honesty believe adding a 'z' to boy makes them sound 'down with the kids'. Rat Killers are living on their one night of glory from last season and Black Hole have been competitive until the last few weeks. Shit You, I still can't spell that, are there too and Bomba...oh dear...the least said about them the better.

Championship C:

All hail JJ's, the only unbeaten team in the entire league, quite some achievement after 11 weeks of the season. Also, in this league we have the anti-JJ's in Phillie's Pheasants, they only team yet to register a legitimate win (for all those that have complained about byes...without them, Pheasants would be very sad and suicidal). The chasing pack is heading by two Dolce Vita teams. The Sweet Life seem to be forever in second and Drool in Pool (quite simply a horrible name; Russell, go and speak to Lon on how to be 'down with the kids'). Frigates are fine until they meet a Championship A side...0-15 and 0-15...simply sorry! Ballisticks, Cue Tips and Scandal are locked in their own little battle over who will finish closest to won't be that close though, in all honesty.
