State Tournament Today!

I’ll try to post some periodic updates.  Definitely look for an overall report at the end.  This should be a great weekend for KingCo Chess with all 8 KingCo state-qualifying teams seeded in the top 11:

#1  Lakeside A
#2  Redmond
#3  Interlake A
#4  Newport
#5  Garfield A
#6  Inglemoor
#7  Bellevue
#8  Tesla STEM
#9  Interlake B
#10  Lakeside B
#11  Mercer Island

A few notes for pairings fans:

  • League protect: the league has rules about teams playing other teams from the same league.  Those rules work as follows:
    • No KingCo teams will play each other in Round 1.  We weren’t expected to anyway with everyone in the top half, but it may shuffle a couple other pairings where perhaps a Metro team would be slated to play another Metro team.
    • No KingCo teams will play each other in Rounds 2 or 3 if it’s possible to do so within the score group.  So, for instance, if 8 teams end up 5-0 after Round 1, but five of them are from KingCo, two 5-0 KingCo teams will play each other in Round 2.  But if only four of them are from KingCo, they will try to pit each 5-0 KingCo team against a team not from KingCo.  At least as I read the rules.
    • League protection is off for Rounds 4 and 5.  No adjustments are made to the rules to prevent teams from the same league from playing.
    • I would expect in the later rounds for a LOT of KingCo vs. KingCo matches with the seedings the way they are.

KingCo Playoffs – Round 3

[EDITED:  Due to inclement weather, teams will be responsible for making their own make-up arrangements that are mutually agreeable between the two schools.  Since registration for State is due by Wednesday, March 1 at 8 p.m., matches between schools that are “winner-to-state” matches should be settled by then where possible.

Here are the match statuses as I know them, with the team playing White listed first.  Updated when I get more information:

  • 1st-2nd place: Redmond A – Interlake A [based on state head-to-head]
  • 3rd-4th place: Interlake B – Inglemoor [based on state head-to-head, if applicable; if not, state finish]
  • 5th-6th place: Tesla STEM – Bellevue [based on state finish]
  • Winner to State, Loser Out Match: Mercer Island – Skyline [Mercer Island defeats Skyline, 3.5 -1 .5 on Wednesday at 4:15 p.m.]
  • Winner to State, Loser Out Match: Redmond B – Newport A [Newport A awarded victory by forfeit]
  • 11th – 12th place: Eastlake – Newport B [unscheduled; neither team qualifies for state]

[Last edited: Friday, 3/3, 8:12 a.m.]

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.
