- First place in league and Brawl play
- Highest non-solo score in history
- The second highest league score in Weasel history… and highest without a solo
- The highest combined league scores by one player from any two seasons
- TWO best country scores in Weasel history
- If we only counted Brandon’s top two German scores, he would still place 2nd in the league standings
- If we only counted Brandon’s two Austria boards, he would still place 2nd in the league standings
- 6 board tops or split tops in 16 games
- Just one elimination
Truly, Brandon is putting in one of the most dominant performances in league history, rivaling Matt Sundstrom’s “3 best country CODCON,” Yeargin’s 200 point 2011, and Nate Cockerill’s bar game solo. Hats off to Brandon- be sure to congratulate him in whatever you see fit.
TIGHT RACE FOR ROYALE HITS THE HOME STRETCH
Fogel has essentially locked up Weasel of the Year- 2nd place Jake Trotta would need to drop a 70 and is not scheduled to play again this season, 3rd place Mick Johnson would need a solo… and everyone else would need a solo AND another result.
BUT slots 4-10 are separated by a mere 10 points, with a handful of other players within striking distances. With two games to play scheduled, the race for those coveted last four spots in Royale is extraordinarily close: any lone board top by a contender will likely secure a seat at the Royale.
Meanwhile, the Brawl is a bit more compact, with Brian Shelden, Jim O’Kelly, and Matt Sundstrom vying for the 7th slot, currently held by Matt Sundstrom. Our last game of the series (and last game pre-Pyle) is scheduled for August 9, sign up here.
BEST RUSSIA RETURNS TO MIDWESTERN HANDS
After out-of-town dues paying Weasel Chris Martin held Best Russia for nearly the full season, Josh Heffernan hopped on his first board of the year and ran away with it. Check out the game recaps here.
