Voting

Here's how the voting works. Decide who you'd like to declare as winner and then simply tweet their first name following a hash mark. Either #mig or #noper and, this is important, also include #lyt in that tweet. We'll leave the voting open all weekend and announce our Season Three Champion on Monday. jc-12.12

Game On

Friday's epic Semifinals have been decided, each by a razor-thin margin of votes. Mig Reyes has defeated Mark Weaver and Noper defeated Greg Hubacek. jc-12.10

Semifinals

Jason Kottke's Match Preview for the first live Layer Tennis Semifinal today has been posted, "Iron Designer." John Gruber's Match Preview for today's second live Layer Tennis Semifinal has been posted too, "If the Slipper Fits." Here are the coin-flips. jc-12.01

Quarters A and B

Mark Weaver and Mig Reyes prevailed in the voting to advance to the semifinals. Congrats to them. We chatted with Mark and Emory Allen and with Mig And Armin Vit after all the pixel dust had settled. Both remaining Quarterfinal Matches will be played live on Friday December 3rd. Happy Thanksgiving from the LYT crew. jc-11.22

Results and Post Game

The voting on our All Hallows’ Match featuring Olly Moss and Tom Whalen is closed and Olly has won. We chatted with him after it all went down. jc-11.01

Schedule Change

A late change had been made to the Playoff schedule. Defending Champion Shaun Inman has been forced to withdraw from Friday's Quarterfinal Match due to circumstances beyond his control. We've asked LYT veteran and post-season contender from last year, Aaron Draplin to step in and take the slot and he has graciously agreed. jc-11.01

Our pre-Halloween live Layer Tennis match between Olly Moss and Tom Whalen is complete. And amazing. Cast your vote for a winner. jc-10.29

Q's

We hosted two Qualifying Matches before today's main event. Emory Allen vs Phil Coffman and Chris Kyung vs Bean. Two more Qs next week. jc-10.28

LYT LA

Monday evening we hosted a special Layer Tennis event. Folkert Gorter and Atley Kasky played in an exhibition match, from the Opening Reception of Adobe Max 2010 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The results were superb. No voting on that match. Tune in Friday for Olly Moss vs. Tom Whalen.. jc-10.25

Money For Boobs

During the Daniel vs Monteiro match we asked people to visit this page at the American Cancer Society and make a donation to Breast Cancer Research, and lots of them did. Thanks for that. If you didn't there's still time. jc-10.22

10/15 Qualifiers

This week's qualifier featured Micah Bauer vs Ruben Cordoba Schwaneberg. They weren't entirely punctual, but they did some great work. bb-10.15

Flip and Preview

The Ref gets back to his Midwestern roots with the coin-flip, and Joshua Allen's Match Preview for today, "Ruthless Cruelty," has been posted. Tune in at 1pm Chicago time for the live match. Check the time in your area for Jessica Hische vs. Mig Reyes. jc-10.14

One and Done

The voting was quite close but Oliver Reichenstein defeated Tom Muller last Friday. We chatted with Oliver after the match. Coming up this week, Jessica Hische vs Mig Reyes. jc-10.12

Qs

Layer Tennis "Qualifying Matches" are played each friday at 11:00, before our main match. Anyone who's interested in playing can drop us a line with samples of their work. We choose worthy competitors and give them a chance to strut their stuff in public. Qualifiers have a chance to enter the end-of-the-season tournament (Last year, they did quite well, with one reaching the final match), and may be invited to play in a main match next season. jc-10.06

Winners and Pormo

"...And yes, layer 3 was my attempt at picking a fight." Dustin Hostetler defeated Radim Malinic in Friday's "from monochrome to megachrome" competition and we chatted with Dustin after the match. This Friday promises to be great. Oliver Reichenstein facing Tom Muller with commentary by Liz Danzico. Plus, two Qualifying Matches. jc-10.05

Game On

Remember to include #lyt in your Layer Tennis tweets, then they'll show up on the Crowd Page. For the latest, follow @layertennis on Twitter. jc-10.01
