Tout Wars Head 2 Head Brackets

The play-in round is complete.

The results

Clay Link advances in a close match that was nip and tuck all Sunday to face Ariel Cohen, in a matchup of last year’s finalists.

And Frank Stampfl bests Nick Pollack to face Ralph Lifshitz in Round Two.

Recent results suggest that regular season champ and 2020 champ Ariel Cohen has to be favored. Point totals for recent weeks?

Cohen: 477, 421, 500.5, 329.5
Link: 315, 274, 343.5, 296.5

Stampf: 407, 300, 450.5, 322
Lifshitz: 380, 307.5, 342.5, 400.5

Give the edge to Cohen, but in Head 2 Head anything can happen. (Ask Andrea LaMont, who this year scored the second-highest number of points and didn’t make the playoffs. Her recent totals?

LaMont: 397.5, 440, 379.5, 454.5.

Wait til next year Andrea. You had a great season.
