Cumbria 2015 Fight Night

Jon Peat and Josh Turner made it to the final of the Cumbria Juggling Convention 2015 Fight Night on Saturday.

Let’s set the scene: Jon has yet to win a Fight Night, despite playing and losing in four final matches, including at the BJC this year. Josh has never made it to an FNC final, but feels good about his chances as he beat Jon at Chocfest in January.

Now watch the video to find out how it all ends:

The winner earned himself 125 rankings points and the loser 75 for the second place finish. Josh earned enough points to climb five places to 22nd in the current rankings, while Jon remains at sixth place overall and third in the 2015 rankings race.

Aachen 2015 Fight Night Combat

Congratulations to Leo Platz for winning the Aachen 2015 Fight Night at the Configuvention Circus Convention on Saturday. He went undefeated in qualification and then beat Jakob Ganser, Leo Ostenrath and Stephan Cipra to take first place overall.

Leo earned himself 125 rankings points for his win (due to only eight players taking part in total, the tournament was reduced from a 250 level event), and this lifts him to 32 in the current rankings and 16 in the 2015 race. Stephan Cipra earned 75 points for his second place finish. Jan Poolen took third place and Leo Ostenrath fourth.

Thanks to Leo Ostenrath for organizing the tournament, and also all the players who took part.


Israel 2015 Fight Night

Congratulations to Emil Dahl for winning the inaugural Israeli Juggling Convention Fight Night. In his first ever FNC tournament he earned himself 500 rankings points, and enters the 2015 rankings race in joint fifth place.

Wes Peden was awarded a wild card entry into the tournament after defeating Omer Lewy and then, in a series of one-point matchups, beating every single other player who had qualified for the tournament in turn. After winning his way into the round of 8, Wes was promptly defeated by Yotam, who went on to take second place overall, beating Bar Mualem in the semi-final along the way.

Iver Tronstad’s winning streak of seven matches and two titles (Skjève 2014, BJC 2015) ended in his semi-final defeat at the hands of Emil Dahl, though he went on to play and defeat Bar Maulem for third place.

More information and results will be added to the Israel 2015 page soon, once it is fully submitted, and hopefully we’ll get some video too.
