Race to the BMGA Cup Champion

With only one major tournament left in the season, let’s look at where the standings sit for the prized BMGA Cup. This award goes to the top Weekend Player. Not only do they get recognition but also a cool $250 dollars in chits!

There are ONLY four players left who could mathematically take home the crown! Remember, the TOP 12 are invited to the Shootout to crown the top player in the league. They will be joined by the TOP 12 WNL Players.

Points still outstanding are:

  • Calcutta Points
  • Finals in 2-Man Match Play
  • Semi-Finals and Finals in Individual Match Play
1st PlaceSteve Couture827 Points
2nd PlaceSteve Shellenbaum800 Points
3rd PlaceHoward Hoffman770 Points

9th PlaceRamiro Sifuentes567 Points
10th PlaceMatt McClernan547 Points

  1. How does it work if guys have enough cup points to qualify for the shootout but are also in the top 12 for Wednesday night individual points? Do they take up both spots or are they removed from one list so that another player can move up into their qualified spot?

  2. Great question. We remove from the list where they are lower positioned. For example, if they were #4 in WNL and #12 in Weekend. We would move down the list on the Weekend Tournament side. If they happened to be both #4 in WNL and Weekend. We flip and coin and move down – this is super rare.
