Ravitz reminds us records aren't everything
Blue Glove Open: Winter 2022-23, Week 16
Solomon Ravitz may be watching the championship from the sidelines, but his 8-4 victory over the now 13-2 Alvaro Orlove reminded all BGO fans that sometimes you can't tell everything from just looking at the standings.
It will be Orlove and Spencer Weiss in the Group A Final this weekend. Ravitz's big win moved him to 4-2 on the season, still six games behind Weiss in the standings. But Ravitz also only played a third of the total matches that either of the finalists did. It earns him Player of the Week honors, toppling the favorite headed into the Final.
Weiss for his part extended his Finals credentials by defeating Tomas Mulita, 8-5. Meanwhile, Finn Koski might receive the award for determination. He turned right around after an 8-0 loss to Lara Isler and won the match of the weekend, an 8-7 stunner against Shannon Bu.
