    [Sydney] Knockout Tournament #1 - Wednesday, March 14th 2018

    All,

    As you already know Pinball HQ closed its doors and there are no official/regular IFPA tournaments in Sydney anymore. To get things moving I contacted Z Ball and they were kind enough to let me host a Knockout Tournament - Wednesday, March 14th at the Annandale hotel.

    Format:

    - Players will be randomly selected into groups of 4 using the Matchplay software.
    - Matchplay will also determine the play order and machine choice.
    - The 3rd & 4th place player in each match will earn a strike. Once a player has received 2-3 strikes, they will be eliminated from the competition.
    - In the event a group of 3 has been drawn, only the 3rd place player will earn a strike.
    - Play will continue until there is only one player remaining in the competition, who will be declared the winner.

    Number of strikes depends on the number of attendance and when we actually start the tournament.

    No preregistration needed, but to get a rough number of players you can express your interest here https://www.facebook.com/events/331264400716470/.

    For more info please check the website http://golja.org/sydneypinball/

    Based on the feedback this may become a regular thing. I am overseas a few months a year, meaning I won't be able to run all the tournaments and therefore help is appreciated.

    Thank you Dejan for making it happen, as well as Roger, MDW and scorekeepers, was a hot sweaty night in the cauldron of sudden death -congrats to the podium finishers who prevailed, thought Ronan did a great job taming the beast that is Guardians when it counted. Great fun to hang out with everyone with a good few jugs of amber fluid provided to lubricate proceedings.Top night, cheers.

    Couldnt have said it any better Ron. Well run comp, loads of fun and we all managed fine despite the numbers considering how limited the space was in the pin room...it just added that extra factor to it all. Bring on the April comp!

    Thanks for organizing @golja . Well organized and went super smooth. Had a fun night. Some games tested adaptability skills.....ahem....Medieval...and was a new experience playing the final on MM, with an audience of drivers sitting at the traffic lights.

    Good fun. Look forward to the next!

    Oh, and with 5 “Mark”’s in the comp, odds were one of us would win.
