Results of Diamond Quest 51!

Post by Goldglo »

On Sunday, October 21st, seven of the Outback’s best gathered together to vie for the 51st Diamond Quest championship! The Round Robin tournament consisted of, in order of random seeding: Bran Bale, Matthew Algiers Simon, Koyliak VanDuran-Simon, Kheldar Drasinia, Artemus A. Kurgen, Gork, and Vinny.

In total, the tournament, officiated by the current Panther’s Claw holder Rena A. Cronin, consisted of 21 total duels and 160 rounds (the longest duel(s) lasted 11 rounds and most lasted between 5 and 7).

Selected Highlights:

In the first round, Art started strong with a shutout victory over Kheldar, but fell to Gork 5-1 in Round 2 after being down 4-0.

In the fifth round, Bran had his best duel of the night, coming away with a 5-1 victory over Matt Simon in 5 rounds.

Art rebounded from two consecutive losses to dominate the other half of the Simon household in round 4, besting Koy 5-1 in six rounds, and followed that with another 5-1 in six victory over Vinny.

Koy got her lone victory of the night in the 5th round over Vinny, in a 5-4 eleven round slugfest.

The Championship Match between Gork and Bran, of course, went to Sudden Death, with Gork eeking out the victory for his very first Diamond title!
