Wow, this is really tough. Eenie meenie miney Newman.

Phew! Tanguy wins it by a nose, six votes to five! He'll be taking on Nolan next for the chance to compete against Orozco as the "march to the left" continues. Newman, meanwhile, leaves the Tournament and can get back to his work.

Thanks for voting!
