Goscha vs Sysy : 4 - 5

5 starts for him but always good combos on my side.

I was down 3-1 playing with bad colours despite my tickets, time to warm up.
Then I'm up 4-3 playing better with good hands and less locos for him Smile.

Should win game 8 if i was trying to be less flexible and more offensive in the last move...

Last game, I play well until the 3 last moves...which were horrible for me... That's what happens when I try to be like the big guys playing for longest, when I could win my way like a brute... Lucky i killed his Dul Hou...

Good games Goscha, and thx !

Angel vs Sysy :
5 vs 2

1st game : Hel La SSM Oak vs Port Phoe Kc Hou (My start )
109 vs 110
I'm offensive on orange and grey, I collect yellow and black open, and i have 2 white only. He delays me around La Phoe but i still secure longest.

He has 6 yellow, 6 black, 6 blue, 6 black, 6 green, 5 white.
I have one card left in hand, 2 cards to pick, he's way ahead in track points. Since 6 green were his second move, Houston can be an option. He overdrew to lay 6 blue and has 5 cards in hand for 4 trains. Can't be dul hou, so I try KC : nailed it. But then he draws and fiends the only ticket on his way to win by 1
Played decent, not rewarded :s



2nd game :Mon Atl SSM Nash vs La Chi Dul Hou (his start)
89 vs 128

He's got all the west for him against the start, I have nothing to bother after his 6 orange.
Was a cake walk for him


3rd game : Dul Paso Den Paso vs Sea Ny Win Hou (my start)
105 vs 77

I have 9 locos, he starts 6 yellow, me 6 orange with 4 locos.
He 4 green, me 6 grey.
4 red vs 4 pink for me.
I decide to lock 4 black Win Dul to kill a north passage. He goes via Lr and Nash. I bother with 4 yellow. Then I can end super fast and drop longest. Even Sea Ny Den Pitt and longest would not have been sufficient for him.
Happy here with my play !

4th game : Cal Phoe Dul Paso vs Hel La Sea Ny (his start)
112 vs 122
He starts really offensive his 6 orange 6 yellow 5 black 4 green. I'm patient with a good combo, start with 6 white, 4 red to oak after his green, then 4 pink and 5 more red.

He bothers me to Cal with 4 blue. Doesnt matter I lay 3 to ssm to force him to play 6 pink, then 6 grey for me 4 blue and 4 black around Duluth and 3 to Phoe. He completes to LA.
I discarded La Ny, but I'm still 3 points short...119 was not enough...
Nothing in my draw. Sniff.

Once again I felt like I play pretty well with good tix and a nice designed and efficient longest for a change... but not enough...

5th game :Mon No Bos Mia vs Port Phoe Win Lr (my start)
116 vs 86
I'm offensive with orange and pink. He starts 6 yellow and black. Then I play 6 red.
He lays 1 to Port then 3 to La. I need to make him play blue so that I can connect Atl Mia and maybe kill his blue if he's waiting to go to Chi, so I lay 5 green that I have nothing to do with, Port SF.
Looks like a good old west combo for him. But despite his nice track and longest, he keeps thinking quite long. I go then with the idea that he has a ticket dead. He tries to fiend, nothing. Win here for me ! Whew

6th game : Win Hou Chi No vs Cal Slc Den Paso (his start)
93 vs 109


He's got the whole west for him. I have no locos after 6 orange, 8 red 8 blue. Another Cakewalk, No competition here. Bit frustrated now.

7th game : Sea La Port Nash vs Van Mon Van Fe (my start)
113 vs 130

He Starts 6 red 6 white. I have no black so north is my only possibilty. So I go yellow and orange. He completes van Mon easily then 4 green.
I have a good longest with 6 blue 3 to La 5 white and down with 5 green to nash. Alas he fiends Cal Phoe.
121 is therefore not enough, nothing fiended.


There we go 5-2 for him. Looks like I got spanked when I lose 2 times on fiendings on my start...
No regrets here. A final is already huge for me. But, to be honest, I'm quite bitter. I played average the whole tourney and I passed through the steps, now that I play pretty well, I'm spanked. Grrr

Wish Angel had a little less luck here...but that's the game....
He didn't make mistakes to let the door open....

He probably deserved it more than me, though overall.



Grats Angel !

SPWC 2012 - FINAL Result Tue, 22 May 2012 23:27
Sysyphus vs Angel

2:5


1st game was very difficult, no start with Port-Pho + Kans-Hou vs LA-Hel + SSM-Okl. I got 6 black and many points on the board, but not longest. When Sysy found the very good Kansas block (I wanted to play this 1 with the last turn) it was quite clear that it was necessary to draw, with only Sea-LA available for - lucky - me Very Happy 110:109

2nd game was very easy with start and LA-Chi + Dul-Hou vs 2 eastern tickets (Mon-Atl + SSM-Nash) Smile 128:89

3rd game was his start again, Sea-NY + Winni-Hou (unclear wheather to drop LA-Mia or not), some good center ticks (Dul-ElP + Den-ElP) for Sysy. He got 6 orange + 6 grey, I connected via a really supid route and needed one more move in the end to the to Hou, which would not have helped a damn bit Twisted Evil 77:105

4th game was my start with Sea-NY + Sea-LA vs Cal-Pho + Dul-ElP. Sysy found a good longest with an uncommon northern loop, but it was +5 for me on the board, so Cool 122:112

5th game was Port-Pho + Winni-Little vs his start with Bos-Mia + Mon-NO. Somehow I wasn't able to get both tickets with longest, because Sysy made a very hard to spot block Port-SF. In the game I thought it was a very difficult block because it looked like I would be easily able to connect via 5 orange and 6 blue, but I was thinking too long all the time so Sysy guessed very correctly that I have more problems than this connection. In the end I had to draw against the obvious Bos-Mia but didn't find anything useful Sad

6th game was my start with Cal-SCL + Den-ElP vs Winni-Hou + Chi-NO. I think locos were 9:0 in my favour and I duly managed to win this game Cool 109:93

7th game no start with Van-Mon + Van-Santa vs not-so-good-ticks for Sysy (Port-Nash + Sea-LA). I was very blockable all the way in the north, but his big ticket prevented Sysy from trying anything. However, he managed a very good route with sure longest, and 4 or 5 turns before the end I felt like maybe losing this game. There were a couple of makeable tickets within reach (Sea-NY, Den-Pit, Cal-SLC, ...) so I drew, finding a very nice Cal-Pho. Sysy drew in the last round but didn't find anything Razz 130:113

Thx for the games Julien, and better luck next year! Smile


PS: pls forget my report, Julien's is much better Embarassed

Answer is yes : Chris did it in 2009, before being number 1 a few days later ! But 3 finals is indeed a first !
