Bloody Mary "Sunday Special" Season II

Season II of the Bloody Mary "Sunday Special" started on May 18, 2008. A Bloody Mary season is at least thirty-two weeks in length with a season championship held at the end of each season. Thirty-two (32) winners of weekly tournaments are invited to participate with winners of two or more weekly events during a season receiving two invitations to the season championship. Winners of three or more in a single season win bragging rights, for now. In future championships winners of three or more will win a round one bye, but we are awaiting implementation of that feature in TourneyBot. The season ends when two 16-player winners brackets are filled with 32 eligible winners.

During Season II we had several weeks where no winner was identified due to a variety of reasons. After careful checking or TourneyBot records, OogaBot, or shout logs winners have been found for all but two potential Bloody Mary dates, 25-May and 8-Jun. I am continuing to attempt to identify those missing winners, if any. Season II will be extended until a full 32 eligible winners have been identified.

Bloody Mary "Sunday Special" Season II Championship

sunray wins a record fourth Bloody Mary

Now, all 32 positions are filled for the Bloody Mary "Sunday Special" Season II Championship tournament. With four wins, sunray will be eligible for two first round byes. Thanks to Tom's excellent work with TourneyBot, I should be able to set up the two winners brackets in such a way to guarantee at least one of those first round byes. If not, sunray clearly has won bragging rights and a place in the Bloody Mary record book as the first four time winner during a single season. With his one win in our first season, sunray also now holds the overall lead in total Bloody Mary wins with five. So, a big CONGRATS to you, sunray.

Invitations with TourneyBot tourney numbers will be sent to eligible winners via FIBS messages later this week. Play in the Season II championship series will begin in the 3rd or 4th week of January 2009 - stay tuned here for details.

Season II consists of 34 weeks with 24 players representing 30 verified winners eligible as entrants into the championship series. Additionally, I have awarded two special exemptions to manxcat and don for their extraordinary help as substitute TD's during Season II (see Bloody Mary Hosts Honor Roll).

Bloody Mary "Sunday Special" Season II Championship
(5-pt matches/7-pt final)
Season II Championship begins on Valentine's Day

PLAY HAS STARTED --- Stay tuned for further details

Bloody Mary "Sunday Special" Season II Championship Brackets

TourneyBot will advise you of your pairing each time you log in and annoy you a little with clock messages. Players will be expected to schedule their own matches and complete each round within 7-10 days. You are encouraged to play your early rounds as quickly as possible. I will try to warn you once at 7 days, but TourneyBot will automatically award the match, if necessary, after 10 days. Exactly how TourneyBot determines an awarded match is not completely clear to me, but I trust Tom and TourneyBot to do it fairly. If awarded, the decision is final.

On the completion of each match, TourneyBot will then assign your next pairing. Once a bracket is started, details can be provided, as necessary, by using TELL TOURNEYBOT MATCHES 278x or TELL TOURNEYBOT CURRENT 278x. Should TourneyBot be down, you may play your match anyway and report results to me.

The Alpha and Beta Brackets below are single-elimination brackets with 5 point matches and a 7 point final. Winners of the two brackets will faceoff in a 9 point double-elimination finals to be scheduled on some Sunday and run concurrently with our regular Bloody Mary tourneys.

Good luck to all entrants and many thanks to Tom for his continued good work in implementing new TourneyBot features that will make exciting new invitational and open multi-day tournaments with longer match lengths possible. Enjoy the fun and a chance at FIBS fame with your name added to the Bloody Mary Cup, and bragging rights for winning a Bloody Mary Tournament of Champions.

Alpha Bracket (Tourney #2780) players:
With sunray's fourth win on 28-Dec, he will be assigned a first round bye in both brackets should ones be available. The remaining seed order is preset based on number of wins this season then players current ratings. As the defending BMSC champion, pck, received a bonus entry putting him in the 2 time winner category for seeding purposes; manxcat also won one regular weekly tourney which with her bonus entry as Mega-Sub also makes her a two time winner. The eligible player lists below are in seed order. Therefore, if all eligible players register, the first round pairings are: seed_1 vs. seed_16, seed_2 vs seed_15, seed_3 vs seed_14, ... , seed_8 vs seed_9.

Eligible:
sunray, jdg, pck, Picasso, socksey, wifi, manxcat, austin, donzaemon, don, RickrInSF, spielberg, Sixta_II, Im_not_gimmeluck, rollingfool, Joyce

Avg. Rating 1684.99

Beta Bracket (Tourney #2781) players:
With sunray's third win on 7-Sep, he will also be first in line to be assigned a first round bye in the second bracket should one become available. Congrats on a great Bloody Mary season, sunray.

sunray, jdg, pck, Picasso, socksey, WiFi, manxcat, Zorba, sixty_something, supermane, yourfuturexwife, saukriver, jackdaddy, gold_eagle

Registration for this tourney was by invitation only to winners of weekly tourneys during Season II of the Bloody Mary "Sunday Special". Invitations were sent automatically by TourneyBot each time you logged in until you register. TourneyBot will only ALLOW eligible players listed below to register.

Weekly Bloody Mary tournaments remain open to all, but the Season Championship requires you win one of the weekly Bloody Mary events in the previous season. We are now several matches into the third Bloody Mary season. So, if you haven't won a "Sunday Special" tourney yet, join us some Sunday and win one to qualify for the next championship. Win two for up to two invites, more for a better seeding in the next championship.

The Start

The Alpha bracket started on 12-Feb when it filled. The Beta bracket on Valentine's Day as planned.

TourneyBot will advise you of new or pending pairings each time you login, a scheduled opponent logs in, or you win a match. Players are expected to schedule their own matches and complete each round within 7-10 days. You are encouraged to play your early rounds as quickly as possible. I will warn once after 7 days and award the match, if necessary, after 10 days. The TourneyBot clock will only be used to award a match when no communication with the directors has been made by the players involved.

These are single elimination brackets. If you lose, you are eliminated from the Season II Championship. The FINALS will be double elimination with all 7-point matches. It will be scheduled to run on a Sunday in tandem with a regular weekly tourney. Details can be provided, at any time, for players and BMSC fans by using TELL TOURNEYBOT MATCHES 2780 or 2781. Good luck to all and enjoy the fun of our first championship.

Weekly Bloody Mary tournaments remain open to all, but the Season Championship requires you win one of the weekly Bloddy Mary events in the previous season. We are now 8 weeks into the third Bloody Mary season. So, if you haven't won a "Sunday Special" tourney yet, join us some Sunday and win one to qualify for the next championship. Win two or more for up to two invites and advanced seeding in the championship.

Just praise is only a debt, but flattery is a present.

We had a little trouble with TourneyBot awarding inappropriate timeouts, but the TourneyBot brackets are now current and correct. Please advise me if you think not. The post below is also updated with current rounds, to the best of my knowledge.

Tournament Directors: sixty_something socksey
(5-pt matches/7-pt final)
Season II

Bloody Mary "Sunday Special" Season II Championship Finals

Joyce Knocks Out Defending Champion pck

Joyce, the #16 seed in the Alpha bracket, advances to the Finals defeating defending champion pck. The other finalist will be the winner of the Beta Bracket, either socksey or jdg.

The BMSC II finals will be a 7-point Double Elimination event to be held in parallel with our regularly scheduled weekly tournament, hopefully next week. (If next week, we will NOT have a "Re-Entry Special" -- that could get a little confusing)
 
Weekly Bloody Mary tournaments remain open to all, but the Season Championship requires you win one of the weekly Bloddy Mary events in the previous season. We are now 11 weeks into the third Bloody Mary season with 13 tourneys completed, thanks to DST "Re-Entry Specials" over the past two weeks. So, if you haven't won a "Sunday Special" tourney yet, join us soon and win one to qualify for the next championship. Win two or more for up to two invites and advanced seeding in the championship.

Season II

Bloody Mary "Sunday Special" Season II Championship Finals

Top Seed, jdg, Makes Finals Defeating socksey

In a close one, jdg, #2 seed overall, defeated socksey, 8-5, to make the Season II Championship Finals. Joyce, the #32 seed overall, advances to the Finals defeating defending champion pck. Joyce's road to the finals has been a challenging one to which she has responded well. She has defeated three 1800+ players along the way and now faces jdg in a best two out of three double elimination. Currently jdg is rated at 1911 after another Bloody Mary weekly win today, his third in three weeks.

The BMSC II finals will be a 7-point Double Elimination event hopefully to be held in parallel with our regularly scheduled weekly tournament next week or at a time arranged by both players when either socksey or me can be there to moderate and announce the results.

It has been a great championship with many good matches. Good luck to both finalists!
