MTM XI, Week 2, Tuesday update

Updates…

Canton: Only one fully paid, fully qualified MTM team in the house, with Donkey Balls making another trip, but after a strong start, fizzled out in the 2nd half.  Still, Donkey is playing the tournament on two fronts, and that works.  You keep hammering away with appearances, you’ll do well in the cumulative.  With recent juggernaut Red Dead Samurai taking a romantic night off (losers), it was a tense game between many non-MTM regulars and several hopefuls.  Among the hopefuls were Seoul Sisters, one of Darby’s teams, in the house to take down Darby’s Hazel Destroy squad.  Sisters nearly pulled it off, but a fatal miscue on what should have been an easy #10 sank them – if they get that right, they get the win, the performance points, and the invite.  Instead, they were hard-luck 4th.  It happens.  They’re an emerging team that should be fun to watch down the road, and they shouldn’t have any trouble qualifying as long as they keep playing locally.  MTM hopeful Coconuts had a decent night, and were in position for house cash on the final question, but couldn’t nail it down – like Seoul Sisters, if Coconuts keep playing, they’ll get there.  Finally putting together a consistent lineup seems to have helped.  Coconuts should consider Darby’s trivia locations.  Invites will come easier there.  As for tonight’s winner, it took overtime to decide, but Hazel Destroy prevailed after an 80-80 tie.  Tonight’s bubble team is almost guaranteed not to play, so we won’t mention them.

Gainesville – #9 gets their first win of the tourney and their 97 point score vaults them into a good position on the leaderboard.  In 2nd is The Experience.  The bubble team from Gainesville is Trivia Newton John, who make their leaderboard debut.  Googlers’ bubble burst, so we say goodbye to them.  Meanwhile, a frustrated Pabst Playboys continues to seek an invitation.  Hopefully they get that done on Thursday.  March Trivia Madness needs a team with custom-made answer pads.

No teams entered on Tuesday… Don’t expect that trend to last through the week.  If you want to play the tournament, and you aren’t qualified yet, play as much as you can!  Take advantage of specific locations… Check out Darby’s game in Grayson.  Check out mine or Darby’s games in Cherokee County… Invites are ripe for the taking…

Alright, leaderboard!
