Rudy Hesty wins Halloween Cup

Halloween Cup held in Jurong Central Subbuteo Cup, Singapore

Jurong Central Subbuteo Club held its usual end-of-the-month WASPA tournament on 30 Oct 2015 with a Halloween theme. Participants donned light Halloween costumes and played their games with them on to the best of their ability (until comfort, and some would say, better sense, prevailed).

There were 10 participants and the club adopted a Swiss format of four rounds, before final placing matches. Things heated up quickly with three 4-0 wins in the first round for Fauzi “Russian Mafia—Singapore Chapter”, Vikas “Jack the Ripper” and Rizal “Grim Reaper”, and cautious 2-1 wins for club league leaders Rudy “Carlos Valederrama” and Anas “I Know What You Did Last Summer”, which entailed innovative rock-paper-scissors techniques to determine the next round of fixtures.

After four rounds, Rudy “Carlos Valderrama” breezed to the top position and final top placing match with four wins. Despite losing his first game to Rudy “Carlos Valderrama”, Nic “High Witch” managed to enter the final by taking advantage of several draws by other players and eking out three straight 1-0 wins, thus finishing second. In the final, Rudy “Carlos Valderrama” outmagicked Nic “High Witch” comfortably 4-0, and took top honours for the third tournament in the row in the club.
