Alex Batacchi wins in Florida

Alex Batacchi and Zach Walker before the final
After a long hiatus, there was Subbuteo action again in Florida where 7 players met last sunday in the premises of Tampabay TSC. Among the visitors, Zach Walker from Colorado and Jody Schaaf from Georgia had travelled a long way and it was good also to meet Dario and Sacha Passadore who live in the Miami area. Dario was playing in Italy 20 years ago and was glad to start playing again. All players played each other and after the group stage, Zach Walker and host Alex Batacchi qualified for the final. The decisive game was close but Alex won (1-0). "A Mourinho style performance", commented Alex Batacchi after the game. Hopefully there will be more events like this in the future in Florida.
