Tournament Level: D
Thanks to Harvey Brandt for the results.
Always one of the premier events at the big overall tourneys, and even with a smallish field, this year was no exception. Old names like Al Bonopane and Scott Zimmerman were brought out to join players ranked high in the world standings, such as Rick LeBeau, Dave Hesselberth, Jon Cohn, and Mark Horn. Pool action on a couple of levels brought us to the semi choice which had a lot to do with determining which two teams would meet in the finals. Dave Hesselberth / Harvey Brandt won that choice by going undefeated in the top level pool. That allowed them to choose Jon Cohn / Al Bonopane in the semis. Making the other semi match up a high powered show down between Mark Horn / Scott Zimmerman and Rick LeBeau / Jim Herrick. Dave and Harvey won in two straight games and then settled in as Rick and Jim won the first game of a best of three, only to have Mark and Scott rally for a victory in game two. It was a hard fought and skillfully played match to the end as eventually too many errors gave the win to Rick and Jim. Scott Z still has what it takes to be one of the top DDC players and it was great to see him out on the court once again. Then it became an all out battle in the finals. Dave and Harvey looked like they were on cruise control, taking the first of the best of five. But Rick and Jim dominated games two and three and seemed in total control. Dave and Harvey had to rally back and took a big lead in game four only to see Rick and Jim whittle the lead away. Dave and Harvey finally put away game four. Game five was almost a repeat of game four, losing big lead but finally ending it with a victory for Dave and Harvey. All told, Rick and Jim were out on the courts for almost five hours. Jim wore every shirt he owned as the heat and humidity were a huge factor. The Women's division saw only two teams this year, with Beth Verish and Tita Ugalde dominating Susie Horn and Marygrace Clark in the finals.
