Green Bay, WI - 01/30/16 - Retro4Ever.com presents Tundra Bowl III

Recommended Posts

Next up, another strong player in the Tundra Bowl III pool, hailing from one of the surrounding states.

 

Tundra Bowl III Participant: Quincy B.

Nickname: None

Hometown: Waukegan, IL

Overall Tournament Record: 10-5 (67%)

Tundra Bowl Experience: TBI, TBII

Tundra Bowl Record: 10-5 (67%)

Average Point Differential:  +1.93 PPG

2015 Matchups Called at Tundra Bowl: ATL-TB, SEA-CLE, RAMS-DET, SEA-GB

2015 Teams Chosen from Matchups Proposed at Tundra Bowl: MIN over WAS, NYG over BUF, KC over CIN

 

Quincy came into Tundra Bowl I as a relative unknown, but yet, dominated the competition in group play. While he exited early in TBI, he returned to Tundra Bowl II with the same competitive fire. Managing to secure himself another spot in the double-elimination bracket after group play, he lost to his good friend, and fellow three-time Tundra Bowl competitor Jay L. From there, he won a close game, only to lose a nail biter to Troy H., the fourth-place player in each of the last two tournaments. Quincy certainly has the skills to make a deep run in the Tundra Bowl III field, and has an impressive record to boot. We will see if it translates to a breakthrough year for him.

We are now up to 28 paid registrants, residing in four different states. Still hoping to see representation from Iowa, Indiana and Ohio making the trip as we all know there are some heavy hitters from those states. The updated registration list is on this post (page 1, first post), or found here:

Up to 29 confirmed participants now for Tundra Bowl III. It has broken our previous online registration record, and we are on track for record numbers in attendance again for the second year in a row. Haven't done a player profile in a while, and this competitor is no stranger to the Tecmo scene.

 

Tundra Bowl III Participant: Rico R.

Nickname: ryanr33fulcher

Hometown: Franklin, WI

Overall Tournament Record: 58-23-1 (71%)

Tundra Bowl Experience: TBI, TBII

Tundra Bowl Record: 13-4 (76%)

Average Point Differential:  +10.35 PPG

2015 Matchups Called at Tundra Bowl: PHX-PIT, MIN-WAS

2015 Teams Chosen from Matchups Proposed at Tundra Bowl: SD over DEN, PIT over GB, WAS over TB, WAS over ATL, MIN over SD, PIT over PHX

 

Rico is coming into Tundra Bowl III as one of the favorites once again. He has had a solid showing in the last two, taking the runner-up position in the first tournament, but getting bounced halfway through the bracket phase by his good friend Troy (PrimeTime). Always a threat to turn on the turbo, Rico has at least eight years of tournament experience behind him. He's always got a soft place in his heart for the Rams, though won't hesitate to 'turn up the AC' when it's available. Expect him to cruise through the group play, and contend for the title at Tundra Bowl III.

With the tournament less than three weeks away, we thought we'd update the masses on a couple of things. First, the official Twitter hashtag for the event:

 

#TundraBowl3

 

I would have loved to stick with Roman Numerals, but it just doesn't look right with the name. Secondly, we have calculated the prizes. All amounts are based off of the $1,000 Prize Pool. The official amounts for each place are listed below:

 

1st Place: $500 & customized trophy (to be delivered to the winner in Madison at Tecmo XII)

2nd Place: $250 & a year of second-guessing their decisions in the championship round

3rd Place: $125

4th Place: $75

Consolation Bracket Winner: $50

 

Thirdly, we are up to 31 confirmed participants. Local news stations are becoming more aware of the immediacy of the event, and we will post news feeds, articles, and any other media in this feed as it pertains to Tundra Bowl III. If you haven't registered yet, make sure you do so: 

http://retro4ever.com/tecmo-tundra-bowl-registration/

 

As it stands now, roughly 1 in 6 participants is walking away with a cash prize

Just had Troy H. complete his paid registration, we are now up to 32. Troy has placed 4th the last two years in a row - will he breakthrough to the money this year?

 

The above list is ONLY of fully paid registrants, knowing 100% for certain those players will be there. As a reference, the last two years, we have had roughly 50% of the field pay online, and 50% as walk-ins the day of the tournament. If that holds true again this year, we are looking at over 60 participants!

Hey Nate just wondering if you have all the equipment you need. I have 3 CRT's and a system which can all come if needed but if you are square then I'll spare my back for my Madison offering. Probably easier to answer once you know how many people to expect.

Thanks for the offer. If you could bring the system, that would help greatly. I have all the complete setups we should need for the tournament, but we had a system glitch out (even though I replaced the pin) last year, and used a participant's backup. It never hurts to have spare systems on hand. I really appreciate it, thanks brother.

So far, these are the places our 34 Tundra Bowl participants call home. Obviously the numbers and map will change as we get closer, especially on tournament day where all sorts of people come out of the woodwork. Sorely lacking any Iowa representation, but hopefully we'll get someone to rep the Hawkeye State for TBIII.

With a little more than a week to go, another Player Spotlight.

 

Tundra Bowl III Participant: Troy H.

Nickname: PrimeTime

Hometown: Franklin, WI

Overall Tournament Record: 41-16 (72%)

Tundra Bowl Experience: TBI, TBII

Tundra Bowl Record: 15-5 (75%)

Average Point Differential:  +14.70 PPG

2015 Matchups Called at Tundra Bowl: PHX-NYJ, KC-MIA, CIN-MIA, CIN-KC, PHX-PIT, TB-DEN

2015 Teams Chosen from Matchups Proposed at Tundra Bowl: MIA over RAMS, NE over IND, DAL over WAS, RAM over DEN

 

Troy has been on the verge of payday for both Tundra Bowl I and Tundra Bowl II. He is the most consistent performer, placing 4th in both tournaments. While that spots now leads to prize money for TB III, his sights are aimed just a bit higher. With a monster +14.7 PPG differential, he'll likely decimate most opponents in the first half. This isn't to say he doesn't have his flaws. In Tundra Bowl II, he lost to Orenga in the second round of Bracket Play. He fought and clawed his way back up the loser's bracket, staving off elimination from heavy hitters such as Josh H. from Madison, Quincy B., and his good friend Rico. His demise was met when he faced off against Rik. Good news for him is that revenge is a dish best served cold, and he'll get his opportunity for it on January 30th.

I would love to come to this event but it is the same weekend as the Lincoln tourney.   We are heading out there instead.   Maybe next year if they are on different dates.   

 

Maybe you can have the Tundra Bowl Champ vs the Lincoln Champ while in Madison!!!

 

See you in a month.

It would be great to have you come up next year. Knobbe and I talked about the same dates, but it was the only date that worked for his tourney this year, so it's completely understandable. Hoping we can get different dates next year. I know he runs a great tournament, and I'm hoping to get down there myself one of these years.

Couple quick notes as we approach the day:

 

*Yes, we do take walk-ins the day of the tournament. We had 20+ walk-ins last year the day of the tournament.

*There will be over 500 people there for the Polar Plunge at Noon. Get there as early as you can, doors open at 10:00am. There is additional parking if needed.

*Weather looks good at first glance for those that are traveling.

*The Watering Hole will have $2 shot specials and Free Pool all day long. Food specials are pending as well, but won't know until game day.

 

We're excited to have our third annual tournament, and we look forward to Saturday with you all! I'm sure there will be updates as we approach the tourney.

Ready to rock The Watering Hole this Saturday! Up to 38 confirmed - another 20+ on the Facebook event page (but I don't officially count those as those are always a shot in the dark). More people are responding by the day, hoping for record numbers for a second straight year!

With the current players signed up and paid, here are the current number 1 seeds for Group Play.

Josh A. (Coconuts): 32-12 overall record in tournament play, including second-place at Tecmo Madison last year

Nick G. (Gio): 8-6 overall record in tournament play, including Top 32 at Tecmo Madison last year
