2nd Place - $50
3rd Place - $20
On to the terribly confusing playoff scenarios, at first look, I thought this probably is not bad, most teams are mathematically eliminated right? Wrong, almost every team still has a chance! Of course, some are better than others, but here are some huge games in the next week that everyone should keep their eyes on:
Team Linton (7-3) @ Team Dogfighters (5-5)
Team Shake Junt (5-5) @ Team Epic Fail (5-5)
Team Egg Roll (6-4) @ Team Szombatfalvy (6-4)
After next week, I can give specific team by team scenarios for the playoffs, but now I'm going to keep it to groups because those match-ups highlighted above have too many implications for slotting!
Better Luck Next Year
Philadelphia Fakeouts (3-7) and Team Harwood (3-7)
These are the only teams that are mathematically eliminated from the playoffs! Don't worry guys, being a spoiler is always fun, and there's always next year!
Living On Life Support
Team Campbell (4-6) and Team Snuggle (4-6) and Team Trader (4-6)
These remaining teams have to win their last two games + score many points
Hope for Team Dogfighters/Team Epic Fail/Team Shake Junt to lose at least one of their remaining games.
Hope for Team Klitzman to lose her remaining game
Hope for the loser and winner of Week 12 Team Egg Roll @ Team Szombatfalvy to lose on Week 13
Need A Little Help
Team Dogfighters (5-5) and Epic Fail (5-5) and Team Shake Junt (5-5)
Win both remaining games + score many points
Win one game + score many points
Hope for loss from Team Klitzman/Team Eggroll/Team Szombatfalvy and other teams in your own category
Beat Life Support Teams in a tie-breaker if one was to win both remaining games
Control Their Own Destiny
Team Linton (7-3), Team Szombatfalvy (6-4), Team Eggroll (6-5), Team Klitzman (6-5)
Rory and Team Linton only need to win one of two remaining games to claim a playoff spot
Kari has a bye during Week 12 and will most likely be in with a win in Week 13 because she has a very nice point total!
The other two can clinch with two wins
A loss from teams in the category or two losses from Rory
An advantage in the tiebreaker over teams in previous categories
Last year's champion Nick Lowenburg (8-3) is officially the first team in the playoffs, where he will be seeded is TBD!
If you can't exactly understand the scenarios, don't worry, the picture will become much much clear next week! Take care everyone!
