In Round 2, The Coin failed to replicate its Round 1 success (6-2), but it still managed to go a respectable 2-2, making it 8-4 overall. And that, folks, guarantees The Coin a winning record in the postseason. (Yep, only three series left. How sad.)

As for the actual, human PHT staffers in the second round…

Jason Brough: 2-2 (7-5 overall)

Mike Halford: 4-0 (eat it, coin!) (7-5)

Ryan Dadoun: 2-2 (8-4)

James O’Brien: 3-1 (8-4)

Cam Tucker: 4-0 (9-3)

Dhiren Mahiban: 3-1 (8-4)
