Top two teams from each pool and then the next best four teams regardless of pool.

Only 7 teams left with 2 or less losses, so 5-3 is guaranteed at least a tiebreaker.

Mixed Doubles

I could be wrong but I think I just witnessed Dawn McEwen throw a game against her skip. That was the worst throw that I have every seen Dawn execute. Of course I'm kidding but it just didn't look right. She and her husband were doing so well and unfortunately, as often happens with Mike, the wheels fell off. Too bad I would have liked to see them in the finals.

Scotties

I assume whoever wins this cannot play in the Scotties as it is at the same time (I think). Can they play with their teams in the provincials to help them qualify and then drop out?

Another comeback

Walker Crocker beat Sweeting and gushue after being 6 down

Classy brad kicks off Val's last rock while its still moving

was maybe a foot heavy - should be a $1000 fine for bad sportsman ship ... in the same league with koe ' s silly demonstration when they won roars - juniors act better

too be fair it wasnt kevins fault , seemed to have got hugged into it

What a wacky playoff! Even the worlds isn't this bad. At that one, if you lose in the final 8 your out! Who thought this up?

An 8-0 team in the round robin has no advantage over a 5-3 team, other than the hammer in the first end. Ridiculous.

The first place teams in each pool should have directly gone to the page playoff with the other 6 teams battling to join them.

Way too many teams to begin with. 12 teams, 2 pools. Top 2 teams advance to the page. Pretty simple. less draws per day.

it would appear that Jocelyn is nervous and Gallant has been asking her opinion to boost her confidence -- not working late in this game

Great Win for the Manitoba Mighty Mite

Last rock facing 3 and a side corner in her way - just perfect weight for Mighty Mite.
Now, she's on the verge of returning to the Olympics - thwarting the poor play of her long-time skip JJ. Heck, she might end up playing JJ in the event finale (doubt it)
Goo & Valberta now playing like monsters - basic shots are wonderful in the over-wrought round-robin but now they're going into nuance mode.
Everyone loves Kaitlyn - Johnny Mo a bit of a heel though!
Still 3 members of the Jennifer Jones brigade in the mix, only Dawn McEwen has copped out in a bad fit w/ hubby Mike.

While Morris made some very good shots, some of his shot calling was rediculous, which is why they likely won't survive. He just can't help himself from wanting to make high risk shots with little payback. Plus , as a team player and a top curler he was a total a$$ tonight. Don't know why anybody would want to partner with him.

john has a long history of these shots whenever he tries skipping .. 10 years now - at worst that last 6 months with martin when he seemed depressed

a unique personality, similar to gushue , hebert, mcewen , edin, trump, evander kane, jamcan

at the other end of the scale from gallant, walker, cotter, ulsrud , howard, kennedy, bam bam, trudeau, crosbie, fresca

tv seems to magnify the eccentricities


lol ha ha

It takes all the patience I have to watch this man curl. He seems to want to change his partners minds with every shot. I don't doubt that he knows a lot but I get fed up with his constant chatter. He's like trump, if he says it twice it'll work.

Johnny Mope's efforts to blow Kaitlyn's mind were mostly unsuccessful last nite. For one, they won the game vs. a superior opponent but that's not important - Kaitlyn survived because of all the training and balancing she's had to endure during his tenure with Jennifer Jones. If Lawes had played with a meek/timid like Val Sweeting or Shannon Kleibrink or even Kris McCarville she wouldn't possess all that mental toughness that's allowed her to survive a week of Johnny Mope.

If Val & Gushue are still in relatively good physical shape I can't see them falling at the hands of Officer, JJ or even Kaitlyn w/ Johnny.

Morris blowing that clearing shot in the final end was priceless. He should never play that much weight without a stick to shoot at - Kaitlyn was virtually useless trying to brush a rocket

Begs a Question ???

Lots of folks who don't have STOH spots or even Brier spots still alive in the MD.

For instance, Jill Officer, Joss Peterman, Mark Nichols, Gushue, Gallant, JJ, Kaitlyn, Val Sweeting, etc.

If any one of them (or two btw) get the MD Olympic spot - what happens to their challenge for provincial titles?

For instance - if Jennifer somehow manages to fluke thru with Mark, will she still play the Manitoba Scotties next week - or will she go into Olympic mode? Does that mean Kaitlyn will skip the squad? Perhaps bringing in Jennifer Clarke-Rouire at 3rd. That would create more drama in Killarney because it elevates Kaitlyn to a bigger provincial stage. I have no doubt she's ready - but I don't know if Clarke-Rouire could provide adequate services at 3rd.

Similarly what happens if Val or Chelsea Carey get thru? Do they adjust their squads for the Alberta Scotties?

oh ml

anyone that gets the precious olympic nod will swim there

if nuked they will play in 2000 degrees on pavement


i guess walker crocker ran out of time against carruthers last night - carruther up one and one on pot and crocker ran out of time as mcewans did early in week

win 8 in a row and lose 2 the VERY hard way

and dan carey fell and broke his wrist - curling is getting violent

Didn't think Jilly could stand up to Joss Peterman - and I was proven correct.
Even though Joss looks like she's fighting thru some mild anxiety issues - she's a far better nuance player than Officer.

Jill can toss runners, clear guards and make the odd draw to the 12 foot. She's more physically imposing than Joss and can brush thru to the cement for her skip.

Joss will have a far more difficult time confronting a nuanced player like Valberta Sweeting or Katie Cruel (Lawes)
