In response to Kruger's question in comments:
The RKKA emerged overall victorious this afternoon. The record was.
1. Me vs Pooch - FW 5-2
2. Me vs Dave D -BT 5-2
3. Me vs Kent Enc 3-2 draw (it went over three hours IIRC)
4. Me vs Dave E BTA 4-3 (BTA = Breakthrough Assault from Stalin's Onslaught)
5. Me vs Stephen S FFA 6-1
In the encounter, it was a pretty relaxed game and I was basically on auto-pilot. Kent wasn't willing to go after me, and I wasn't willing to throw trained tanks with H&C in front of Panthers - though it might well have worked if I could have killed the Panzerwefers before he killed the T-34s.
My game vs Dave E was the only game I can remember where I think the 4-3 result is a fair reflection.
I did two FD moves this tournament (FW and BTA), and rolled '1s' both times.
Of note is Stephen S's new Irish Guards list. If he had played it differently, hanging back his tanks in concealment and using the Typhoons to force me to come to him, I'd have struggled. So 6-1 flatters me quite a bit. Once he practices with that, I think he could consistently do well. I hope he sticks with it.
All that said, BF points are stupid and meaningless. I got four wins and a draw. Never played Craig, who got 2nd. He says he could have played for a draw vs Pooch, but it looked to me like they were locked in a death grip (which could have gone either way, actually) and they'd have been calling it when there was still plenty of time for them to use. If Craig had beaten Pooch, he would have been the clear winner on 5 wins, no losses. Personally, I don't think that Axis-Allies is the best idea when it means that we get to not play each other.
Still, I took my prize from Tim, shook his hand and said 'funny how that works out'. Afterall, I entered only after my wife pointed out that even though there was no WOTR, I had nothing better to do that weekend!
