KingCo Playoffs – Round 3

Round 3 is on Monday, February 27.  [EDIT (2/18): The site has been announced as Interlake HS.]

Before the pairings, a note to ALL teams qualifying for state.  You must have five players for ALL matches.  A team that does not have five players will be disqualified and are taking up a spot from another potential KingCo team.  Also, do note that registration (click here) MUST be received by Wednesday, March 1 at 8 p.m.  This doesn’t give a lot of time for teams that are only going to find out definitively on Monday.  I’d recommend that teams that have not yet clinched a berth prepare as if they will qualify.

Championship Round Robin

White Black
Redmond A [1] (8.0) Interlake A [2] (8.5)
Interlake B [4] (1.5) Inglemoor [3] (2.0)

Note that because of the scores and matchups, it is impossible to have a tie for any of the top four places.

As the Swiss progresses, pairings sometimes get more complicated to make as we try to equalize colors to the extent possible as well as avoid rematches.  We are also trying to maximize match quality for our top teams to make sure that our top four teams have had the best possible matches.
