Florida boys at papa
« on: April 07, 2017, 08:44:36 AM »
So I'll try and update when possible, however Eric and I are here and getting right into it. He was able to play classics yesterday and just missed the cut for finals.
So I think we spent more time on main bank. There is no link for the standings now, unfortunately there is an application so unless you want to download the app you won't get the standings. I can screenshot them as we progress.

Classics is rough, 16 qualifying machines, best 4 means you have to have close to two top scores just to get in

Based on Classics I, it looks like 317 points was the cutoff across 4 games to make top 24.  That is about 79 points per game or and average of a top 9 result on each of 4 games.

Classics II is following a similar pattern and as of this writing is 313 points, or about 78 points per game, or a top 10 average on each of 4 games.

So yes, to qualify,  the players really need to step up their efforts.  That is because there are multiple independent groupings of 4 games that can be chosen.   

Best of success to you guys, and thanks for keeping us posted! :)

Here are our standings so far

Eric didn't play today, I don't think he was feeling too well, probably saved some money, because out of 20 games played I improved my funhouse score only
