The Turkey Classic for Alex Batacchi


The sixth edition of the Turkey Classic played Sunday October the 25th on the Batacchi Grounds in Tampa Bay, Florida was another success of fun, friendship and very competitive Subbuteo table soccer. 3 players from the Florida Sharks TSC (Dario Passadore, Milaine Andrade and Jose Miguel De Diego), Virgil Goodin from the Kansas City TSC joined Isabel and Alex Batacchi. The qualifying groups did not produce surprises even though there were sign of improvements in Milaine and Jose' games. The Championship group saw some tight encounters between the 3 Floridians, with Virgil unable to keep the pace, Dario was able to reach the final just on goal differential after tied his game with a very good Isabel, and loosing a very close one with Alex.
There was a fantastic final game between the "Turkey Classic King" Alex Batacchi and the charging/emerging Dario Passadore (second couple of weeks ago in California), directed very well as referee by Virgil between the two incredible competitor friends.
Congratulations to Alex for his final victory.
