The full results can be seen in item 5 in Fixtures & Results on SSPL web. This round detail:




The semi finals draw will be held at the Moonshine Pub at 8 PM on Friday 24th November.

The intent was to play all round 3 at a neutral venue. So we will draw the 8 hosting venues for each night and allocated the 8 matches drawn so no teams plays on their home table venue.   


The random draw for venues with give preference to balancing those venues who have not had a home match and vice versa.


Here is a table of matches locations already played.


Additional notes


Monday:

The priority venues will be venues that have not had a home game, IE Hustlers Fun and Sportsman Pot shots played away twice, therefore Hustlers and Sportsman host in lieu. Two venues not eligible for a neutral Semi Final are K & S and Country Road. as they have had 2 home matches.

The other 12 venues will host the remaining 6 matches and these will be drawn at random on November 24th

Wednesday: Priority , Country Road team and Sportsman Exiles so each of Country Road and Sportsman in lieu will Host. Not Eligible is Why Not Bar and Sportsman in lieu of Why Not and Stoned teams who have played twice at home

The other 6 venues will be drawn at random and then the matches will be allocated on a basis of maximum convenience for both teams.

Under no circumstances will any team play a neutral semi final in their own venue.

Links: Ladder https://goo.gl/EO1Pjt Team detail https://goo.gl/2iY1zF  Please note next week we have a break with Next Round Matches resuming on Oct 30 and Nov 1


And well done everyone for getting your scores posted on time. A perfect run today, allowing for traffic holding up Cher Ami, one of the carrier pigeons, just a tad. 

Just for fun I did a crude chart of our Hot Shots match, hosted at Pickled Liver Pub, to compare the win rates and see if I could spot why we lost.
The first left is Hot Shots 43% bar followed by 5 individuals win rate bars. Moonshine's 57% bar is followed by their 4 players individual win rates bars is on the right..

Being neck and neck at game 25 Moonshine, then they found some extra energy. The chart hides that but it does show clearly that one person made a huge difference.

We also a load of fun trying to take the match off them, and trying to stop her doing more damage, before they pulled out all stops to win at game 30. A truly great night played in great spirit.

Doing the rounds today I heard Breakers, Sporstman, Moderation Bar, Club 15, The Mexican and Spankys Me all hosted great nights of playing fun in what we generally, similar close matches .
