103) Don James, Jr. Challenged number 102 Becky Conway at SRO on Monday after the tournament defeating her 3 sets to 0, 12 games to zero to take the number 102 ranking. No I am not kidding!!

We have 1 correction. Jason Crawford did not actually participate in the event. He registered, as did Ted Knusten, but did not play. By USAA precedent, you have to play at least 1 match to earn a ranking. Therefore, Jason Crawford should be dropped as was Ted Knusten. With Don James's challenge match victory, he is officially ranked #101. Becky Conway still holds the last available world rank at 102.

You mispelled James' first name: Donnie.

Maybe someone else with more info can chime in here... I don't have the time to do the research. I recall an indepth discussion a while back regarding challenging below your "challenge rank". Don James' current seed position is 25.5... I'm pretty sure he cannot challenge #102 and come into the next tournament as a novice.

That's correct. His seeding on future tournaments is not affected by this challenge match. It just makes my life more difficult when trying to calculate seeds.

Don indicated that he intends to challenge up the ladder. I suspect some of us will be facing him on the table soon enough.

Perhaps Don is targeting Tory Evans, who played with a broken arm, next ?

ESPN Radio host AJ Hoffman thought he'd be a great opponent!

i whipped Donnie when I first met him at Memorial City when he wore his diapers high; and now I will whip him while he wears them low.

I think Don should mass-challenge all 100 players above him in the rankings and play them all starting with #100.

Maybe Don is going after a USAA record for most challenge match shutout victories.

It's wonderful to see we've had players from Russia and Singapore at the tournament! :)

I wanted to say thank you to TAG for putting together another great event. Hopefully our sponsors stay with us and we can continue this relationship.

Congratulations Davis on your great win and Billy for being so close.
You and Billy were clearly playing the best air-hockey out of everybody at the tournament, thus meeting each other in the finals.
The finals was an exciting finals since it went 2 sets and the second set went 6 games. We need more finals like that.

We also had some very exciting matches that went down to match point either way.

Congratulations also go out to these players:
Evan and Goren for making masterhood.
Albert and August for finishing 11th and 12th.
Andrew for FINALLY making the top 16.
Tim Leach for coming back from 0-3, 4 - match point to win his match against Dave Parmley. VERY EXCITING match.

Until next time.
Take care.

Thanks Syed.

Taking some time off before this tournament really allowed me to have fun playing AH again, win or lose. For some of us, frustration has crept in, and we had forgotten how much fun it is just to compete in AH. That is the one bond between us all - young, old, small and large, far and near, is our love of AH. Celebrate the moments that we do have to get together and compete, and then have some drinks or go out to dinner afterwards. Consider yourself fortunate that you are able to do so.

I was going to enjoy this tournament even if it were in a barn, but I can safely say that we were all treated to a spectacular corporate type atmosphere. Thanks to everyone who contributed so much time and energy, you should all be feeling great with how it turned out. I am honored to have participated in this event.

Congrats to Billy on a championship level performance - I just barely edged you out at the end there, and I'm glad we put on an exciting finals for everyone and the sponsors.

Long Live Air Hockey.

Sorry, I realize this is a bit late.

The tournament put on by Zwack and TAG was fantastic. The table graphics, Zwack girls, and appearances by ESPN made the atmosphere one of the best ever. Thanks guys!

I had no idea how I would do at this tournament - I considered winning it to finishing out of the top 10 as legitimate scenarios. Leading up to the event, I thought I was playing mediocre - Goran and Dan had been hammering in practice. After the event began, I realize that Goran and Dan were in fact beating me because they were playing awesome and that my level of play was higher than I had thought.

I am honored to have participated in such an exciting finals! Congratulations to Davis on a well fought battle. Most of the match is a blur to me. After watching it on tape, it's pretty clear that it was a defensive battle, something I was not as aware of while in the moment.

Well done job by the Chicago crew: Goran finished Master, Mark 13th, Dan 23rd, Eric and Brian both in the top 50, and I was in the finals. Not too shabby!

Carolina Phil also had a nice showing. Phil won a tough 17-24 spin-off and only lost to Anthony and Ehab in the main draw. Each of those matches went to 7 games and Phil should have won both of them - unfortunately, when the crowds started gathering, Phil started Razzle-Dazzling. :)

Also, big props to Anthony who had great run through a nightmare draw in the losers' bracket.

That was a fun one,
