What was the payouts last year and how many showed up?  Also are there any reasonably priced hotels or better yet fellow players we could crash with?

Hey @hankthetank! We had 32 last year and usually average around 30-40 competitors. First place is usually around $200-250 though last year I put a little more of the raffle money to the top 3 so it might have been over $300 for first. Cheap places to stay depends on how close/far you are willing to stay near the venue. You can post here to see if anyone will offer to host or wants a traveling buddy. 🙂

Once again, another great tournament in NYC. The games went really quickly throughout the day and even up until the late playoffs when we started stalling/streaming. It definitely helps those of us driving from distance.

 

Congratulations to @tadaoson his dominant championship game performance and his tough semi-final victory. Also congratulations to @arncoemon his third place finish. I only managed to watch his elite eight game but I saw some good techniques in that matchup.

 

Also I should give a shout-out to @Martin black who helped me train. Technically my weaknesses in this tournament were ones that can be worked off in solo training, but I would also point out that I now am running an 0-4 record vs. him. He was grateful for the experience and the chats you had with him. Many of you fought hard against him, thank you - no gimmies!!!

Rounding out the top eight were Danny K (@knightsof3), Greg L (@Deviled Greg), Scott S,  and Josh N.  Four different players finished in the top 8 this year from last year!  The raffle prize winners were Tom C (twice), Matt A, Greg L, and last year's champ Dave H (@Ranatoro). Other T-Borg members in attendance were: @deadfaulkner, @dwightstone, @PatrickB1008, @Thrash @discdolo @Barletti.  Special thanks again to Ryan @hoigaard, Patrick, Matt, Erik, and Greg for all the extra work they put into making the tournament happen.

 

Another big time Championship matchup with Bills-Giants this year. Congrats to Leif for making his first ever final after years of very excellent play! Overall, this was a very competitive tournament from top to bottom.  Thank you all again for making Tecmo even better!
