Webb takes first place in May Double

RR Event

Austin Webb proved that he was just not another pretty face as he upended Lon in their playoff game to take the $15 cash prize and a ton of speed rating points. It took Josh Muir a tad longer as he notched a pair of wins in the playoff single game round robin against some pretty strong opposition to net his rating gain. Time was at a premium in this non-traditional round robin event, that turned into not being a real round robin as a number of unplayed games marred the final results aided by of some less than efficient  planning on the part of TD Lon Rutkofske. It appears that Lon was not the only competitor suffering from less than heady play, as none of the highest rated players escaped the ravishes of "blunder mania"!  Here is hoping that next month's G/90 USCF rated Mini-Swiss (See Calendar of Events for details!) will feature more satisfying games for all that participate!
