State Championship 2015

We ran two tournaments this past weekend: The Downtown Master Series I and our regular G/40,5 d on the rainy Sunday. The first one was won by NM Mike Zaloznyy with 4.5 points after an important victory over FM Dan Durham in a very complicated game, worth analyzing. Dan had a perfect score before the last round 4/4. Congratulations to Mike on his win and thanks to all the participants!
