It turns out I was right the first time.
After begging for a rematch due to some arcane technicality or something (who can even remember?), Mangini In A Bottle was unable to replicate his prior magic, and suffered a bloody defeat at the hands of FreemanMcNeil. Hey, at least you got two games out of it.
There won't be a game tomorrow, but there will be a very important post about the tournament going forward. Let's all take a deep breath, and check back in tomorrow.
And thanks for your votes!
