A little update for the masses.
We capped the participation at 40 people. The names were all thrown into a hat and drawn out, then were placed into brackets of 5, each bracket named after a local bar commonly frequented by yours truly.
I was placed into the Molloy's bracket, not quite what I was looking for, but i'll live with it. I drew a couple of hard plays in my pool, but I'm confident that I can be one of the top two that advances into the bracket play.
I won my first game +5. So let's just say that I came to play. Bottom line. I'm here to win.
