Sneaky, old  Lon upends youthful foe for clean sweep of June Mini!

Lon Rutkofske managed to pull a "fast one" in the final round against youthful challenger, Austin Webb to remain undefeated in the June USCF/PHCC Mini-Swiss . It seems as if we "old dogs" still have a lethal bite, as Bill Wingrove schooled USCF newbie Josh Muir on the nuances of the Sicilian Najdorf in his final round win.  Avery Jones managed to turn a sure loss to Noel Bedy in his Armageddon last round melee, as our man from St. Clair stumbled into a lost ending, despite being in a winning position.  Having more than 4 playing, with a dynamic duo of youthful enthusiasts, made for challenging pairings and interesting games! Thanks to all that participated!
