McPhillips Street Station Casino Saturday, March 29

It was nice to get out and play some active chess, and meet some folks including John Enns and Lawrence Kusla.
The tournament itself resulted in a rare 5-way tie for first with Rolando Bince, Jaroslav Czypinski, Michael Gibbons, Sam Lipnowski, Waldemar Schulz all with 4 points.

Bella Iomdina upset favorite Sam Lipnowski in the first round, but
Sam worked his way back to the top defeating Tony Boron, and Jason Repa along the way. Tony drew with Michael Gibbons and Jason drew with Waldemar Schulz; but 3.5 points was not going to be enough.
Schulz and Gibbons drew in the last round after Waldemar missed a relatively easy win in the knight and pawn endgame.
