Quick update: Finalists: Ryan (4 wins) Tucker (2.5 wins) Me (2 wins) Eeyore (2 wins) Ryan played Blue, Tucker grabbed Green (my color, alas), I took Yellow, and Eeyore had Red. Eeyore won the first game nicely, and almost won the second game as well, but it ended up going to Ryan. There was, therefore, a lot of Eeyore-stomping in the third game -- and in the end, Tucker, in his first ever IIT final, won the game by enough to beat both Ryan and Eeyore. Very high scores overall; I think the only score in the final below 20 was Eeyore's 15, though there could have been a 19 or something I forgot, and that's with nobody doing a pure shotgun or anything even that close to it. This is, interstingly enough, the third year in a row that an IIT first-time finalist has won the tournament. It's also the third year in a row that I've made the finals (and, in fact, the only three times I've made the finals) and not won. -- Joshua Kronengold (mneme@(io.com, labcats.org)) |\ _,,,--,,_ ,) --^-- "Did you know, if you increment enough, you /,`.-'`' -, ;-;;' /\\ get an extra digit?"
