Shorty Jenkins Classic?

Will there be any live stream or will the footage be solely shown on Cogeco? Unfortunately I have Bell, seems shortsighted to have such a great field only being shown on YourTV, if this is the case.

Yea a number of Canadian (and American) teams are struggling but so early in the season, I'll put it down to early season rust.

Is it just me/the angle/me looking too much into it or does Koe look owchy in the leg/hip/knee here?

But as usual after 4 games in both the mens/womens draw the cream has started to rise. Only 1 real dark horse in the top 8 men and 2 in the top 8 women.

The Gushue/Koe game on Saturday night was interesting in the manner in which it ended...
Extra end, Koe with Hammer. The only rock in the House is an unguarded Gushue rock in the back/side 8 foot. Gushue Hogs his first rock. Koe takes Gushue’s back/side 8 foot rock out, and shooter rolls out.
House is empty. Gushue wants to put his last rock on the T-Line, 8 foot. He comes up a foot and a half short of the House.
Koe has an open draw - with only the one guard - for the win. Hebert and Flasch start pounding it about 7 feet before the Hog Line. The two of them pounding all the rest of the way... got it to bite about 3 inches of the top 12.

During that extra end, several other games had finished, and the sheets were empty except for one sheet 3 sheets away from Koe/Gushue. Ice slowed. Skips didn’t adapt. Almost blanked the extra end!

That would have been an interesting match to watch indeed! Johnathan Brazeau mentioned Kev fired a bullet and sent a rock flying two sheets across!

Fleury & Co. would be the last team in the world to complain but there's no way they failed to notice that once having qualified for the Playoffs they would have to defeat both Tirinzoni ( ranked # 1) and then Homan ( ranked # 3)* just to reach the final game.

On the other hand, at the bottom half of the draw, Jones had to defeat Yoshimura ( ranked # 12) and Gim ( ranked # 30) in order to qualify.

Does this look "fair and balanced" to you? I believe the Drawmaster could not have made it more flawed if s(he ) wanted to!

Any Drawmaster should have been aware that the prime objective is make it possible for the two top seeds Not to meet before the final game.** But this person chose to do exactly the opposite by ensuring the two top seeds could not possibly meet in the final game.

* Homan , #3, should have been positioned on the Bottom rung of the Bottom half of this draw.

** Can you imagine in tennis, for example, the consequences of scheduling Nadal & Fed. or Serena & Bianca to meet in say the Fourth Round ?

The pools are set up according to ranking. The playoffs are set up according to how you do in the pools. Pretty easily understood.

Besides, this early in the season you have no current season record - only last year's results.

JJ is usually very spotty, regardless of opponent in early season match-ups.

In fact, one can say - even Jen herself might say to her teammates - "lets make sure we don't peak to early, guys"

That said, going thru an early season tourney like this undefeated is pretty much a tour de force. One that Jones comes up with every so often.

Kudos to Fleury for making it thru a tough slog to get to Jones.

"The playoffs are set up according to how you do in the pools."

They are?

Four of the teams in the Shorty Jenkins' Playoff won their Pool with 4-0 records while each of the other teams won their Pool with identical 3-1 records.

So how come, guido, all the teams with identical W-L records were simply not placed in the same half of the draw?

playoff seeding

At first glance each side of the playoff pools had 2 teams 4-0 and 2 teams 3-1, seems pretty even.
The only way to make it absolutely fair would be to seed all 4 teams 4-0 one to four based on dtb scores and the 4 teams at 3-1 5-8th
Then set the pools with the top half 1vs 8 and 4 vs 5
Bottom half 2 vs 7 3vs 6
Play on

Bang-On, IN-OFF !

Too bad you were not in Cornwall last week to help those folks when they needed it most.

I agree with your suggestion how the playoff draw should have been designed to help ensure fairness and balance.

We differ only in that I had (3 vs 6 ) in the top half and ( 4 vs 5 ) in the bottom half, but I don't consider that significant.

What's really key, of course, is that #1 and #2 should be kept as far apart as possible for as long as possible,( and the same with #3 and #4), because this helps to ensure most of the top teams will survive deep into the bonspiel. "In the end, without proper seeding, many of the superteams will be left on the sidelines and most of the SF's and Finals will become lopsided affairs."

The Shorty playoffs were seeded like every other event is.

1v8
4v5
2v7
3v6

That sets up semifinals where 1v4 and 2v3 face each other if favourites win.
