    All,

    Just wondering if anyone has been involved in tourneys that have gone right down to the wire. I post two as examples so that I can kickstart the discussion:

    Tournament 738

    The one I'm currently in. I have two win my last two games to take the tourney into another round. If I lose against RobRoy, then he wins the whole thing. If I beat RobRoy and lose to bitter, then Zilch is the winner. It's that close.

    Tournament 531


    A Lost Bobbys tourney. Pateman's ahead, but must beat rhb for the title. If he loses, then he must hope that rhb and Mike OConner split their games. If either win both games, then the person who wins both, wins the tourney. rhb, though, can force a playoff by beating pateman and taking a win out of two.

    Any other examples? Remember, no comments on games in progress, please.

    my only tournament win was nailbiting to me!

    Tournament 547

    First round I tied grandmaster bater in our grouping to advance.. second round i tied camilli (which in our games I lost and tied) so we had to have a 3rd round as the tiebreaker. In our games we tied one, and I won one to win. If you look at the final two games, they were very close too.. no runaway games.
