2009-2010 Season Club Championship Tournament Results!

Eric Wicklund erupted from the lowest seed position on the playoff ladder to face Matt Reklaitis in the championship finals, which were played during the June tournament. In a grueling best of 5 9-point matches, Eric overcame being down 2 matches to none to beat Matt (himself a former club champion!) in the fifth and final match.

The semi-finalists were Alex Zamanian and Herb Gurland.

Other players who earned a start in the club championship tournament based on final standings in the point race were Anne Bidner, Greg Jukins, and Tom O'Riordan.

Congratulations to Eric Wicklund , the 2010 NEBC Champion!

2010

Herb Gurland defeated Anne Bidner in the finals. Alex Zamanian defeated Marcus Hermansen in the consolation. The point race is close, with just the May bonus points tournament to go!

October
2009

Alex Zamanian defeated Anne Bidner in the finals. Herb Gurland beat Eric Wicklund in the consolation. We had a small tournament with only 8 players, probably because it was only 2 weeks after the September tournament. Don't miss the November bonus tournament which features longer matches and bonus points.

September
2009

We had a full bracket of 16 to start our 2009-2010 season. Tom O'Riordan won, defeating Marty Storer in the finals. The semifinalists were Eric Wicklund and Matt Reklaitis. In the consolation, Doug Roberts defeated Dave Boulay. Reigning club champ Alex Zamanian went 2 and out, indicating that last season's domination including 3 tournaments won in a row was a fluke.
