Roberts#1: What you know
|

The first round is in the books, and it didn't disappoint.

Here's who advanced:

GREEN BRACKET:

#1 Bigalke def. #8 Kev316

#2 The Return Begins def. #7 Dyhard

#3 LGP def. #6 Johnny D

#4 BGM def. #5 ICS

No upsets here, all of the higher seeds advanced. (Must be a testament to my seeding prowess).

RED BRACKET:

#8 Torque def. #1 Foosball

#2 Roberts#1 def. #7 NuclearWinter

#6 Lakers#1 def. #3 Mac Brody

#4 Wtnelson tie #5 Argooos

The result of the tiebreaker vote was 5-0 Wtnelson.

A much more interesting bracket, if you ask me.
