Deal Me In Games 2017 series 3 results

Some of us got together in Boyertown to jam cards while listening to the sweet sounds of . . .somebody playing live music at the street fair right outside the shops open doors. It was actually a nice setting if not a little distracting. With an EE legacy qualifier and another regional shop hosting a T1 tournament today the player base was divided. We had 12 show to battle it out at Deal Me In Games where there are normally 20-30. A little disappointing but Jason didn't let us down. When we got to the top 8 he offered up full prize support as if we hit 30. The top 8 all talked him into something more reasonable for the store. After much prodding from the Top 8 to not get hosed on prize support Jason scaled it and awarded prizes as if 20 had shown up. Always a great host!

Despite the low turnout it was one hell of a room to maneuver thru. We ended with a top 4 split of prizes between Dan Barkon, Dan Miller, Zach Dobbin and Jeremy Beaver. With the top 8 rounded out by William Dayton, Josh Barkon, Jason Beaupre and Greg Hoover.

Top 8 quarter-finals
Dan Miller defeats William Dayton
Dan Barkon defeats Jason Beaupre
Zach Dobbin defeats Greg Hoover
Jeremy Beaver defeats Josh Barkon

Top 4 split from there
