*(2011 Historical Observation: The description for Round 12 doesn't seem to match what happened, since, assuming the recording is accurate, Jake feinted and not Dare. Also, again assuming accurate moves, the result was a split-advantage, not advantage Dare.)
It was a great duel and Dare was well deserving of his victory.
In light of the confusion surrounding this event, the coordinator of this Diamond Quest RDI Rand, explained that the Double Elimination was suggested as an alternative to the round-robin, but that based on the results of the event which were less than satisfactory, it was unlikely that Double Elimination would be used in a Diamond Quest event again.
