Exclamation Singles and Doubles rankings: the #1s after the 5th leg are...

James is going to lose over 2000 points after this leg and we’re sure to have a new singles #1. Dropping last year’s points, 3 posters start the 5th leg with a consistent chance to get the top spot for the first time in their career. The 4th is below 2000 pts and can’t catch up in this average scoring leg.

2548 - Meteor Shower
2399 - -Ph51-
2218 – Rik.

There are up to 500 main draw points to gain: I can anticipate the difference in terms of combinations is around 75 points between the best and the worst of these 3 contenders, so it’s clear it will be down to who’s going further in this leg. Of course Or starts with a consistent lead, but, e.g., if it was Phil to gain those 75 points, it would take just one more upset in the main draw to get ahead.

Re: Singles and Doubles #1: 3 posters and 4 pairs fighting for the top spot!

The situation in doubles is a bit different but as exciting as well. Rocketta & Rightous have just re-gain the top spot, but dropping last year’s points former #1 Adner & The Crow lead by 21 points. 2 more pairs, including the Race current leaders, have a real shot at #1, while the 5th, below 1900, will have to wait for another chance.

2368 – Adner & The Crow
2347 – Rocketta & Rightous
2286 – Valda Lake & Brian Stewart
2215 – Gallofa & Rik.

The leg differences are more evident (up to 150 points), so the rounds won might have a less important effect than the score itself, but the margins are slimmer, so it will be even closer.

We really need to pick it up in doubles. All those mediocre teams fighting for #1 spot. Pfff.

Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.
Be kind.
Always.

I fear for a bad leg, so not too confident in our chances in doubles

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

I didn't say you were bad - just not at the level you used to be with carot. *pulls on some feathers*

Re: Singles and Doubles #1: definitive standings after today's matches!

Today is the day.

Meteor Shower's 2nd round loss set the current #1 bar at 2700, including the points form the combination.
Rik, at 2495, can't get more than 200 winning the whole thing.
Phil is at 2658: if he wins today, he will be the new #1; if he doesn't, Meteor Shower will get the top spot.

In doubles, only one top 4 pair will survive the quarterfinals, getting the #1 spot BY 6 POINTS.

Good luck everyone!
