Today at Dania - Game 4

Having been a jai-alai fan for 44 years, I really thought I had seen it all, but today I saw something I don't think I had ever seen before. In game 4, which was a 9 point superfecta game, there was a five way tie for show after win and place had been determined, with each of the five teams having scored one point. Under the playoff rules, those five teams had to play round robin until one team reached the number of points designated for the game, which was nine. Alex and Ubilla, in post 6, won the first playoff point, and the second, and the third, to get to 7 points and possible show point. And then they lost. They got another turn on the court, and lost again. Then they got a third turn on the court, and lost again. A few minutes later, it got to the point where all five teams had 7 points each, so the next point had to decide show. Who's receiving? Alex and Ubilla. And they lost AGAIN. I don't think I have ever before seen one team lose FOUR possible show points in one playoff.
