Breaking news...

I have to admit I kinda' expected this one...Jason Allen of SAP was disqualified today after winning his first four matches. Also disqualified this week was the Ace Makers' Prasanth Boyareddigari. They join Thai Chung and Prasanth's teammate Kevin Cunningham on the sidelines. The 4.0 ranks have been hit hard by disqualification this year while the 5.0 division and 4.5 division (with its former Davis Cupper Willy Lock) has remained unscathed.

Allen's disqualification has serious playoff ramifications. SAP had squeaked past the Acers 3-2 in week one, and therefore has moved behind the Acers in the fight for the coveted second playoff spot. As previously noted, SAP plays the Phoenix this week, and faces a huge uphill battle in its quest to sweep without its top player.

The Acers have an easy match this week and a somewhat tricky final match. They could potentially clinch this week with the right combination of outcomes. The Acers would be a much more dangerous playoff team had Oscar Larrazolo not been wisely plucked by veteran Lakeside Captain Mike Spoor.

As an interesting sidenote...Alain Tran is looking a lot wiser for holding out Peter Borkop from the last few matches in light of all of the 4.0 disqualifications. It will be interesting to see what he'll do if he faces a "must win" match against the Katy Coaches in the season finale.

  3. Tran was clueless about Borkop until HtownHacker mentioned it. The guy has his head up his ass with his line-ups.

  5. Looks like 4.0 CWP will be pool play; so goods new that each division top 2 team get to participate. Looks like SAP is sitting on the sideline for CWP.

  8. I don't know why these people are giving Tran a hard time. He's making line-ups with the people who are available that week. Many people are sometimes out of town, or otherwise unavailable, and as a captain you have to make the best line-up with what you have.

  12. Looks like Lakeside secured City spot at 4.5 I, will Katy Coaches figure out a way to win their final match over Duecebags? It would be a 3 way tie at 5-2.
