WIN's Hodge update

Recommended Posts

Toughest road is somewhat subjective. He has a former one-time finalist and two guys who had AA'd often and high but never made noise on Saturday night (and after those three there is a tremendous drop in talent). I would say 125 would be tougher with a 2x champ, 1x finalist/3rd finish in the way of Waters (plus others who have placed top 4 - equal to Storley/Evans), 141 has 2 former finalists that Stieber will have to face, 157 will have a 2x finalist in Ness, plus Green and Miller who also have equal credentials to Storley and Evans. I could go on, but I don't think Kokesh has a tougher road than the other guys, just a more top heavy road of equal talent in the top 4 guys.

If Kokesh wins out he should get for having the toughest road to the title.

 

 

So:

  a) 174 will be a 64 man bracket this year,

  b) each match will be best 2 of 3,

  c) Cael, Pendelton, & Askren will be allowed to compete, no weight in, or

  d) you can somehow predict precisely each of Kokesh's opponents?

Is there any chance Logan could not win Hodge. There is no David Taylor or Cael Sanderson type bonus guys this year to even challenge Logan. Logan wins out, no matter the fashion of his wins then he easily wins the Hodge I would think!

 

did you not look at the report. Nick Gwiazdowski has 13 falls to Logans 9 thus far.

All star isn't considered in hodge criteria. It's Stiebers to lose, with the others at an outside chance. Cox is there with the other undefeated guys right in the mix. If stieber loses its a guessing game at who wins it (if stieber loses before the finals but still wins it all I bet he still gets it)

It actually is considered in the Hodge criteria.

Dierenger is my early favorite for next year's Hodge.  Stieber has a slight lead on him in # of pins and points-per-match. And, assuming he becomes only the fourth 4x champ, I expect they'll emphasis past credentials somewhat heavier this year.  

 

At any rate, Alex is fun to watch and so far he's put up bonus points in 83% of his matches, highest of all those WIN listed as candidates.  (Stieber is second in bonus rate at 76%.)
