Results after the break.
Who advanced to the final? Did Beau show-up Brooks and return to the Winner’s Circle without him, or has the student become the the master? Did the Novak clan con their way in? Or did the masters of logic figure it all out? Is my nickname really “the dentist”?

Congrats. His enthusiasm for the game never wavered from the day he signed up. I still remember his passionate response when asked for the second time if he’d like to play: “Ugh, sure.”
