Bitcointalk Sports Fanatics League - Cup Semi-Final

Cup Semi Final Review:

We had cup semifinal games played out and it was super close as expected. Hhampuz needed penalties to come on top in his duel against Renato297 while Chi20 had a bit easier job against Ulven.

Here are the games and results:

Hhampuz vs. Renato297 3-3 (3:2 pen)
Ulven vs. Chi20 1-3

The plan is to finish remaining league games and then we will have cup final between Hhampuz and Chi20 to finish third season of BSFL with a bang.


Friendly games:

This was first time we had Sporstbet guys joined into our BSFL league and they did so with mixed success.

Alex had a dream debut and won 6:3 against forum legend buwaytress. I would say that buwaytress maybe wanted to take it easier on new comer but I don’t think that was the case here :) In other duel Harkorede won 4:3 against Steve to keep the balance between bitcointalk and Sportsbet guys intact. Really hope that Steve and Alex liked the experience and that we will see more of them in BSFL. Next opportunity will be in the cup final slot when most teams will be free to arrange a friendly game.


Round 13 Preview

We are back to league games this week, that means regular round in Divisions 1 & 2 while Division 3 is playing promotion playoff. Questions are live and deadline is fast approaching so make sure to post your answers on time. It is tail end of the season and every point is worth double would be a shame to fall behind on a technical error.

This week we don’t have fringe sports, but we have NFL and NHL to add a bit of diversity to football dominated form. We shall see who will profit the most from such setup.

Division 1
We have a derby game between cls63 and leea-1334 this week. This game is pivotal for both clubs since a win would propel them to title fight while a loss would probably mean mid table finish. Sort of expect them to split the points and leave the decision for future game weeks. Our league leader, vd309, also has a though opponent in mv1986 so this could be the week when we see some changes to the league top. CasperBGD has the easiest job on paper, but team slaman29 needs the points badly so we will see how this one goes. Cryptofrka is meeting darxiaomi in a relegation derby, where a win for him would mean practically a safety from relegation while a loss would put him right back into the relegation fight till last game.

Division 2
Notblox1 still has a healthy 6 points lead at the top but then it gets super close in fight for promotion places. Division 2 derby game is a clash between mentioned division leader notblox1 and vivekdkhyani, a team just behind promotion places with all to play for. Then we have another promotion derby in a game between chi20 and strongkored. Looking forward to see how these games will end. Seems likely that we should have much better picture of the teams that will get promoted after this round. On the other end of the table we have a super important game, literally worth 6 points in relegation battle between arallmuus and dbshck. Winner will get boosted to mid table security while looser will get cemented deep in relegation zone. High stakes all around.

Division 3
Regular part of division 3 is over now and we have promotion play off to be played between positions 2-5 in Division A & B. Draw is seeded in a way that 2nd placed team from Div 3A faces off against 5th placed team from Div 3B, and so on down the ranks. That gives us following 4 fixtures:

  • entebah - MAAManda
  • ILuckyGuyI - goodpunt
  • LFC_Bitcoin - shogun47
  • PedroCunhaYori - Jinetics1111

I am expecting a lot of close matches. Stakes are high and all teams will want to show their best game here.
