If the winner takes any injuries like Deadpool I add a little blurb next to it, if they didn't take any it's left blank. So the 3 other matches were a beatdown basically.

That's the only information I recorded other then who won. I knew how long it was going to take and I've had (bad) past experiences with going into more detail with these kinds of things so I took the simple route.

So Melbil, the swordsdwarf from the first round just made this. Which is awesome  :D

Some other stuff that happened after the tournament but reveals nothing of its outcome is that i've started forcing the dwarves with the best genes to marry and have super-babies, babies that may participate some 4 tournaments from now. None are married yet but some have paired up and will eventually make some rather interesting kids. Punisher and The Stud are together, which is awesome in ways I can't even describe. Their kids wont be the fastest dwarves on the block but everything else is pretty much guaranteed to be godly. Picture if you will a walking muscle with a beard who could block a spear with his face.

Another good one is Tyson and Meng Budplank, or, the number 1 and 2 endurance dwarves. Their kids would probably be able to take out an entire siege without breaking a sweat.

The Craziest so far is Siegebane and Zero. Siegebane is the fastest dwarf and Zero is the 3rd slowest. Zero is the strongest dwarf and Siegebane is the weakest. Their kids will either be terrors to behold or the scrawniest things ever.

Here's an updated look of the current bettings. This round will be ending sometime thursday.

Swordsdwarf Matchup:
(0☼) The Nose vs. Hollywood (200☼)
Axedwarf Matchup:
(150☼) Nameless vs. Olin Creatureearths (200☼)
Hammerdwarf Matchup:
(400☼) Hannibal vs. The Stud (700☼)
Speardwarf Matchup:
(200☼) Tory vs. Tooth Fairy (250☼)

334 on each of The Nose, Nameless, Hannibal and Tory.

I have a pretty scary suspicion I don't want to confirm, but I'll tell you about it after this round is over :)

(Something i'm adding to the first post is that all dwarves here got their experience in combat and training, I don't use danger rooms.)

Betting Round 2 Results:

Swordsdwarf Matchup:
(534☼) The Nose vs. Hollywood (300☼)
WINNER: THE NOSE
Axedwarf Matchup:
(984☼) Nameless vs. Olin Creatureearths (300☼)
WINNER: OLIN CREATUREEARTHS, only took some bruises
Hammerdwarf Matchup:
(834☼) Hannibal vs. The Stud (900☼)
WINNER: HANNIBAL
Speardwarf Matchup:
(634☼) Tory vs. Tooth Fairy (500☼)
WINNER: TORY

Oooo... some hurts going on for Nameless backers and glee from Olin supporters. We finally got an oldie falling victim to a newbie. He wasn't perfect this round but Dariush still did the best with a net gain of 477☼. Zanziik fought back and would have been nearly bankrupt if he didn't win big on Olin with a whopping 656☼ payout, not including the turtles he got back from the bet. Here's the updated leaderboard:

We're getting into some unchartered territory with betting round 3. Good luck.

Betting Round 3:

Swordsdwarf Matchup:
Basher vs. The Executioner
Axedwarf Matchup:
Nerfy vs. Vab˘k Claspscalds
Hammerdwarf Matchup:
Magoo vs. Reg Dustedcrafted
Speardwarf Matchup:

And.... I'm in last. Well, I'll just pretend you're a terrible typist and meant to write 4000, not 400. Shame on you.
