Updated to R1 standings ...

It's been years since I've held the lead in a SKAN. This one is by a prety slim margin

1. PeterSkan 302
2. Zalvar 299
3. JazzNU 289

but Omegadoom in 4th @ 288 and daveg in 14th and 258 are ones to watch out for, since their [so far] inspired choices of Keys and Murray respectively are bringing in Quality points in the early going.

Meanwhile time will soon tell if I suffer from the SKAN-curse that typically assails the first-round leader and tumbles them down to the bottom tier in short order.

listen-your final pleasure-to the voices,
to the exquisite music of that strange procession

Losing no team members in R1 is my first goal… failed that recently, but chose well this time

Residing once is Tier 1 is another one… and that is achieved too.

R2 standings up to date ...

Zalvar sneaks into the lead, and Omess moves to the Bronze position

1. Zalvar 638
2. PeterSkan 626
3. Omess 619

There are still 11 of 26 teams fully intact. Round 3 will likely separate the wheat from the chaff ...

PeterSkan jump back to the lead [1331 pts], followed by Zalvar [1286] and Omegadoon [1252.

Zalvar leads the domination category [719 pts], followed by PeterSkan [699]

PeterSkan leads the victory category [610 pts], followed by Omegadoon [580]

Omegadoon leads the quality category [60 pts], followed by deelighted2 [38 pts]

Only PeterSkan and Omegadoon have 5 players left. If we do a head-to-head on their teams, it looks like this:

My only chance is if Sinner goes to the Finals
or Rafa loses (WHICH I DONT WANT TO HAPPEN EVER).

Despite losing 2 players in R2, the other 4 are still active and I could have all 4 finalists.
