Title: AC Finals Match Play 2011
Post by: Aces and Chains on June 10, 2011, 12:13:59 PM
Update:Points update for each division is at the end of this thread. List of players invited, and online signup is available here: http://www.acesandchains.com/node/1



We'll be running a special match play tournament (probably in September) from the shop this year. To qualify, you must be one of the top 16 in points earned at an Aces and Chains tournament this year in one of the main 5 divisions (Novice, Rec, Int, Adv, and Open). Points add up from each Aces and Chains tournament you play in. (other divisions - see below....I haven't left you out.)

If you qualify, you will be invited to play in the match play tournament in your division. This will be a single elimination (ie: sudden death) tournament. Entry fee will be $10. The winner in each division will get the cash, and their name engraved on a trophy/plaque that will be permanently hung in the shop. Each year, a new winner will be added to the same trophy/plaque.

Divisions other than the main 5 will still be able to participate. The number of entrants in each division will be based on the number of players who have earned points in that division. This will be determined after The Wild West 2011. Winners from divisions other than the main 5 will get the cash (entry fees for the AC Finals from their division), and a small trophy to take home.

This is meant to be a thank you to all the players who come out to play in an Aces and Chains tournament this year. It will be non-sanctioned, and all entry fees go straight back out as cash prizes. Hopefully, this will add an extra element of fun and competition to the tournaments this year.

Post by: Aces and Chains on August 04, 2011, 12:52:18 PM
Please note that if you move up to a higher division, you can still use the points earned in the lower division to qualify for match play in the higher division. (You cannot use points earned in a higher division toward play in a lower one.) That way, there is no penalty for moving up.

As soon as Deuces Wild gets fixed on the PDGA site, I will update this list again.

Need to pad your totals? We only have one tournament left - The Wild West at West Park on August 27th & 28th.
Title: Re: AC Finals Match Play 2011
Post by: Aces and Chains on August 09, 2011, 11:40:31 AM
Deuces Wild points are finally up on the PDGA. New points totals for each division listed below. There is only one tournament left to pad your totals: The Wild West 2011 at Westpark in Joliet IL on August 27th & 28th.
Title: Advanced division totals
Post by: Aces and Chains on August 09, 2011, 12:03:35 PM
No changes to Pro, AGM, GM, or the Women's divisions.

Advanced points:

1.)   Jon Boster – 175
2.)   Jason Riley – 145
3.)   Ben Carrescia – 110
4.)   Elmer Mueller - 91
5.)   Steven Jacobs – 90
6.)   Jeremy Buzea – 75
7.)   Kyle Chapman – 65
8.)   Mike Conlee – 65
9.)   Kenny Glassman – 65
10.)   Matt Travis – 60
11.)   Michael Austin – 55
12.)   Matt Preston – 55
13.)   Kris Linscott – 50
14.)   Nathan Nelson – 50
15.)   Keith Kowalczyk – 45
16.)   Ryan Gavrick – 45
17.)   Zach Zandstra – 45
18.)   Tafe Hemler – 45
19.)   Lee Nusbaum – 35
20.)   Anthony Ippolito – 30
21.)   Mike Sale – 30
22.)   Ryan Buikema – 30
23.)   Scott Murphy – 20
24.)   Brett Lakin – 15
25.)   Scott Slugarski – 10
26.)   Du Zandstra – 5


A wide spread of points thru the top three of Jon Boster, Jason Riley, and Ben Carrescia. Looks like the 16th spot in Advanced could be highly contested. The difference in points between 6th and 18th is only 30 points. With 16th place at 45 points, anyone could still get in the finals.
Title: Intermediate division
Post by: Aces and Chains on August 09, 2011, 12:11:13 PM
There was a lot of movement in the Intermediate division.

Int points:

1.)   Randy Moore Sr. – 256
2.)   Kester Jeffers – 204
3.)   Cory Clements – 176
4.)   John Marren – 164
5.)   Mike Thompson – 144
6.)   Jacob Burton – 142
7.)   Matt Walter – 132
8.)   Justin Teller – 108
9.)   Aris Pashos - 106
10.)   Jesse Tackett – 104
11.)   Tim Guajardo – 89
12.)   Eric Fite – 76
13.)   DJ Eskra – 75
14.)   John Boyd – 72
15.)   Kent Hengels – 68
16.)   Nathan Taylor – 68
17.)   Jeff Reardon – 64
18.)   Gabe Guerrero – 60
19.)   Brandon Rosch – 56
20.)   Chasen Birdies Gowan – 56
21.)   Robert Hatch – 56
22.)   Rudy Spiller – 56
23.)   Dan Janes – 48
24.)   Steve Vose – 48
25.)   Matt Cook – 40
26.)   Rob Wright – 40
27.)   Robert Radtke – 40
28.)   Elmer Mueller – 36
29.)   Scott Brozenec - 32
30.)   Adam Hatch – 28
31.)   J.P. Kelhmann – 28
32.)   Mark Santa Maria – 28
33.)   Todd Paraday – 28
34.)   Tyler Seddon – 28
35.)   Brian Davis - 24
36.)   Daniel Pastore – 20
37.)   Tyler Marrero – 20
38.)   Nick Biebel – 20
39.)   Robert Huebner – 20
40.)   Eric Mademann - 20
41.)   Nicholas Cellini – 16
42.)   Patrick Haaker – 16
43.)   Jason Rosillo – 12
44.)   Jenny Cook – 12
45.)   Bryan Pierce – 8
46.)   Lauren Lakeburg – 8
47.)   Shane Mytnik – 8
48.)   Max Diaz – 4
49.)   J.D. Boone - 4



Randy Moore Sr. has been on a tear all year long. Sitting 52 points above second place, his lead is nearly insurmountable. But can he win 5 match play rounds in a row to bring it home? This Intermediate field looks very tight, with the difference between 12th and 22nd being only 20 points, anything can happen.

Points are up for The Wild West, and I've compiled the totals and listed them in the posts below. My apologies if I spelled anyone's name incorrectly.....I was up pretty late making these lists. So if I butchered anyone's name, please let me know and I'll edit out the mistakes.

Invites for the AC Match Play tournament will be put in a separate post later today or tomorrow, along with more details on the format.

Title: Intermediate update
Post by: Aces and Chains on September 07, 2011, 09:15:40 AM
A lot of movement on the Intermediate list. Randy still commands a huge lead over the field, and won't have to meet the second place finisher until the final round, if at all. Jacob Burton, and Aris Pashos (among others) bring a lot of points from lower divisions earlier in the year, and by playing multiple days at many of the tournaments. Let's see how that strategy pays off during match play. Will they be overmatched? Or are their skills progressing fast enough to beat the rest of the pack?

Int points:

1.)   Randy Moore Sr. – 352
2.)   Jacob Burton - 284
3.)   Kester Jeffers – 260
4.)   John Marren – 248
5.)   Jesse Tackett - 180
6.)   Cory Clements – 176

List of players invited, more info, and online signup is available here: http://www.acesandchains.com/node/1

You can also stop in at the shop to sign up (cash only please!)
Title: AC Finals - invites and signup
Post by: Aces and Chains on September 07, 2011, 12:59:06 PM
There are several discrepencies at the bottom of the invite lists which I hope will be eliminated when one of the spots in that division fails to fill, either because the player is out of town, or lack of funds/interest for this tournament. If that fails to happen, then we may need to have a playoff for the last spot between the following players who are tied in points:

MPO:

Kris Hutter
Clayton Drake



Recreational:

Matt Jakusz
Chris Anderson



Novice:

Alex Africa
Danny Cardwell
Aaron Studer



Anyone I've listed above with a discrepency, may sign up immediately. All first alternates are welcome to do so as well. If we can't put you in a spot, we will refund the money.

Catching some discrepencies with the divisions players are assigned to, as I'm going thru trying to find everyone's email address and phone numbers. I will post the corrections all at once as soon as I am done.
Title: Re: AC Finals Match Play 2011
Post by: Aces and Chains on September 08, 2011, 12:42:48 PM
Minor changes to the invitation list:

Eric Willhite has been moved up to the Int list
Sean Callahan has been moved up to the Rec list

Because of this, the last person on the Int list has been bumped, one person on the Nov alternate list got moved up, and the Rec list is still pretty similar.

The invitational list is avaliable on the front page of the Aces and Chains website (see previous post).
Title: Re: AC Finals Match Play 2011
Post by: Aces and Chains on September 19, 2011, 04:37:08 PM
This is a pre-register only event.

Once I have 16 players registered in a division, I'll make up the bracket and let everyone know who they will be playing in the first round.

I will hold a spot for each player on the invite list until Friday, September 23rd. After that, spots will be filled from the alternate list on a first come first served basis. Anyone who is on the current alternate list is welcome to pre-register to be on that waiting list.

So get your pre-registrations in to claim your invitation!

Post by: Aces and Chains on September 23, 2011, 04:54:38 PM
Ok, all alternates may now sign up. The remaining spots will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.

I'll post here when each division fills. Get your registrations in!
Title: Re: AC Finals Match Play 2011
Post by: Aces and Chains on September 29, 2011, 10:30:11 AM
Today is the last day to sign up. If you plan to play, please pre-register before the end of the day. If you absolutely can't pre-register, but are 100% positive you want to play, call me at 815-993-3472. This won't guarentee you a spot, but I'll put you on the short list that I'll use to fill any empty spaces in the brackets after I close pre-reg.

There is NO day of registration.

Title: Results - first week
Post by: Aces and Chains on October 03, 2011, 04:10:53 PM
Here are some results from some of the first week matchups:

Novice:

Larry Pennuto 76
Kyle Greenfield 70

Brandon Gutierrez 75
Joe Roppo 85

Eric Smith 72
Aaron Studer 84

Kenny Loeffler 74
Alex Africa 72


Recreational:

Sean Callahan 71
Matt Hotuyec 65

Ryan Barcas 71
Blaine Schepp 72

This was a hotly contested match. I hear that DP (Barcas) won it by deucing the last hole. Way to be a true deucebag Dr. Pepper!

Still waiting on Nugget, and Jason Smith. If anyone knows how to get in touch with them, please have them call the shop at 815-207-8874. Kyle Leos is out of town as well, which is why I haven't called for a forfeit for either of them. But I'll have to do so soon....


Intermediate:

Preliminary rounds:

Bryan Sullivan 67
DJ Eskra 71

Kevin Macuiba 69
John Boyd 64

First round matchups:

Randy Moore Sr. 64
John Boyd 63

John Marren 68
Cory Clements 62

Jesse Tackett 63
Mike Thompson 68

Kester Jeffers vs.
Bryan Sullivan

Sr. against Boyd was a tight round that went into sudden death. Boyd pulled it out with a deuce to bring his final score down to a 63. Deucebags are really hurting the Fox Valley faithful.


Advanced:

Jon Boster
Mike Conlee (Had to forfeit. Jon advances)

Ben Carrescia 63
Kris Linscott 68

Jason Riley 64
Matt Preston 66

Eric Fite 60
Tafe Hemler 68

With a blistering round of 60 (-12), Eric advances to the semi-finals against Jon Boster. Meanwhile, Tafe heads home to spray some Foil on his wounds. You may not remember what that is, but I bet Tafe does...

More to come. We'll try to occasionally post who is playing when and where in case anyone wants to come out and watch.

Yep. We both shot -8 and went to hole #2 in sudden death where John made his putt and I missed mine. I missed a 15 foot putt on hole #23 that would of won it but John was a better player. Fun round that went down to the last putt. Congrats John and Thank You Patrick for the competitive disc golf that you gave this year!

Just to whet your appetites, here is the prize money for each division (based on # of paid players)

Novice: $80
Recreational: $90
Intermediate: $100
Advanced: $90


Each division winner will also get their name put on the "perpetual trophy" that we will display in the shop. Each year, another winners name will be added. We will unveil this trophy next year at our "grand re-opening." If possible, we'd like to get a picture of all the winners with the trophy at that time.

I thought you would have given him a hard time already....

Besides, Eric doesn't read the forum. It's too intellectual for him.

Eric Fite v. Tafe Hemler / 1st rd. @ West Park; 9 AM tomorrow.
Spectators welcome, but...
If you mess with me or my round, your corpse will be thrown out onto I-80 after I'm done killing you!  >:(

Guess I should throw myself onto 80!
"Fox Valley is dead.  Long live Fox Valley!"
Eric beat me, 60 to 66.  I even wore my new Deucebag shirt! Bahhh!!!
Hard to compete against the BEST pre-lim round out of our pool.  Eric was on fire.  He even deuced #12!
When you lose to a guy that's playing lights out, all you can do is tip your hat. Good play Eric!

My apologies for the long delay before posting the results. I've been in survival mode at the shop. But nonetheless, I've been remiss for not posting these...

I'm going to break it up again by division so each post doesn't go on forever.
