You know what we haven't had around here for a while? A grudge match, that's what! Gustav Klimt really beat up on Franz Kline back in Round 1, but then fell to Paul Klee to end up in the Left Bracket himself. Meanwhile, Kline has done fairly well for himself against International Blue Klein and Ernst Kirschner -- not, perhaps, the most daunting of opponents -- and finds himself with a rare chance at redemption! Remember the Grudge Match Rule: Kline would have to win outright. If it's a tie, Klimt wins on the strength of his previous victory.
Kirschner gets knocked out of the tournament this week with a record of 1-2 (16-25), and Pierre Bonnard goes out at 1-2-1 (21-29).
