Tournament Level: D


 
 
 
 This year, as last, we merged all the teams into one great pool and then
 sorted out the other divisional winners if that became necessary later.
 This (in my humble opinion) has shown itself to work wonderfully during
 the past 2 years. There will be much discussion upcoming about going
 back to more restrictive divisional play at the Masters. I would urge
 all to consider the option of keeping our DDC play the way we have had
 it over these 2 events. It gives everyone an opportunity to extend their
 play and experience over a greater range, rather than limiting it to
 only a few teams in their respective division. Enough of the commentary.
 
 We had 21 teams for the Masters DDC this year. Started with 4 pools with
 the top 2 teams from each pool going in to the "A" semi, the next 2
 teams going to the "B" semi, and the last teams going in to the "C"
 semi. A few upsets as the team of Ugalde and Verish won over Carreiro
 and G Kirkland to effectively take the Women's title and make it to the
 "A" pool. Also the VERY crusty team of Dooley (yes, that Dooley) and
 Williams bumped Korth and Wright out of the "A".
 
 I'll cut to the chase and rather than list all the finishers, suggest
 you go to the Masters web site for the line up. A few highlights,
 however. In the "A" semi, the top seeds of J. Kirkland / LeBeau and Horn
 / Pierson met in the finals. Both had only one loss, Horn / Pierson
 beating Kirkland / LeBeau in the last pool game but suffering their only
 loss to the teaming of Hesselberth / Hobson, a last minute pair.  The
 finals saw Kirkland / LeBeau take out Horn / Pierson in 2 straight games
 under shifting winds.
