Loa Tournament status

The second round third Email LOA tournament is over, and the result is a 3-way tie for first place.

ddyer (5-2) defeated dpriddy and lost to engleberg and hthordsen (4-3)
dpriddy (5-2) defeated engleberg and lost to ddyer and ottavio (4-3)
engleberg (5-2) defeated ddyer and lost to dpriddy and ottavio (4-3)

There may be some nit-picking way to decide a winner based on style points, but for my money, this is as even as it could possibly be.
