Bye: Ron Bruno
Broman grabs the lead with only perfect score (3). Anderson & Lower tied for Second Place with 2 1/2, Jensen, Castaneda and Qu trail with 2.
Bd 9 Richard Jensen - Vincent Broman 0-1
Bd 10 William Wijaya - Caley Anderson 0-1
A nice upset for Caley, who as one of the Class C players wasn't expected to win that many games, but here he is tied for Second Place and going for the gusto. William had a decent opening but later on let his guard down at a critical moment and Caley landed a haymaker for a TKO.
Bd 11 Pouyan Azarshari - Marty Lower 0-1
Bd 12 Roberto Aiello - Shaun Sweitzer 1/2-1/2
Shaun had this game won, but faltered right at the end, allowing Roberto's King access to the corner square and with a Bishop of the wrong color, his extra rook pawn was useless. See this tragedy unfold if you dare...
Bd 13 Chuck Ensey - Luis Castaneda 0-1
Chuck had the edge most of the game, but lost his way in the ending, a great victory for Luis who has become much stronger over the last year.
Bd 14 Jason Qu - Joel Batchelor 1-0
Thanks to Hai Qu for sending in this game. Joel did sac the exchange as I was speculating yesterday, but didn't get quite enough for it as Jason played accurately. There was a tricky draw claim possiblity near the end of the game that Joel missed, almost all players would have missed this one.
Bd 15 Hector Gonzalez - Amando Malvar 1F-0F Malvar was sick, but emailed me instead of calling in. But you can only email up until 4 PM on Wednesday, after that you must call the club, as I am no longer home.
Bd 16 William Murray - Robert Samuel 0-1
I can't read Bob's scoresheet which he admits is completely illegible.
Bye: Erik Marquis
