Best in the West

It was again a very successful weekend, with over 90 participants, with 1st prize being shared between 4 players (James Morris, Domagoj Dragicevic, Carl Gorka and Kris Chan), each on 4.5 / 5. Also, Sergey was able to finish equal first in his rating group and score biggest upset by beating a 1500 player, which earned $200. Well done sergey on a terrific tournament!!

Please join me in thanking Tony Davis for his work over the previous months to get the players together and run a terrific tournament.
