Blumenfeld Counter Gambit Allegro results

This event was the 5th round of the Allegro events we hold each year, each with a different opening start position. Results are below. Congrats to Bruce (again!). The images are from Erwin Blumenfeld (1897 – 1969) was a famous American photographer of German origin (nothing to do with chess, as far as I know).
