The Infinite Art Tournament Left Bracket Third-Round Elimination: Adams v. Lippi!

Filippino Lippi has won four straight matches in the Left Bracket after losing his First Round Match to his dad.  One of his victims on this comeback trail has been none other than Lippi the Elder, who lost the grudge match after losing in the Second Round to El Lissitzky.

Meanwhile, Lissitzky went on to beat Ansel Adams in the Third Round, setting up today's match faceoff in the elite Third Round Elimination Bracket (Nickname: "Gateway to the Semi-finals").

Leaving the Tournament this week are Wyndham Lewis (3-2; 32-28, .533) and the Limbourg Brothers (2-2; 26-20; .565), with the 21st and 11th strongest "batting averages" of the 233 Tournament leavers to date!



Ansel Adams
1902 - 1994

I like Lippi a lot, but he can't touch Adams.

Huh! Like them both, but don't see either belonging in the Semi-Finals. What a long strange trip! I'll go with Lippi.

Lippi.

And now that we can be pretty sure that no other voters are going to turn up, I think it's time to declare young Lippi the victor of the contest, having rounded up seven votes against Adams's four. Lippi will take on another Play-In Artist this coming Thursday!
