Key Takeaways

  • The first hint at the final table order has occurred. Dallas is mathematically eliminated from contention for the top spot in the West. Generally, other dominoes start to fall quickly after the first does. That’s the whole point of calling them dominoes.
  • For as good as San Diego has occasionally looked, they’re sitting at .500 and only 2 bonus points ahead of the five spot.
  • Even after their slow start LA has a remaining schedule that keeps the top seed within their control.
