Okay, ALL the games in the Championship and Reserve sections are now posted! Rick was unresponsive/secretive/incognito about this game (as losers?! sometimes are), but I got the winner to send it in... Thanks Marc!
2 Ronald Bruno - John Funderburg 0-1
See Cyrus Annotates for this fabulous game, Cy thinks it is the best of the Championship so far.
Bd 3 Buddy Morris - Bruce Baker 0-1
The Longest Game of the Night -although this one only went until 11 PM, many of the games were over much earlier, plus we had quite a few very short games tonight. I love it when we finish early!
Bd 4 Dimitry Kishinevsky - Todd Smith 0-1
See Cyrus Annotates for this game
Bd 5 Ignacio Sainz - Brad Salz 1-0

Bd 6 Fawsi Murra Jr - Carey Milton 0-1
A real tactical battle as usual from Carey
Bd 7 Ed Baluran - Chris Borgan 1-0
This one was over before it started as Chris was rushed out the door by Ed (g4!) after arriving late, just as I was re-pairing this game, so I am figuring Chris must have been a bit flustered.
Bye: Fausto Robles, Jim Humphrey
Vince Broman (5) takes full point lead, Caley Anderson (4) is 2nd, Rich Jensen (3 1/2) is 3rd, Castaneda, Ensey, Qu trail with 3.
Bd 9 Vincent Broman - Luis Castaneda 1-0 Click on the names to see the game.
We are getting the trophy polished up for Vince, but he still has a little work to do.
Bd 10 Roberto Aiello - Caley Anderson 0-1
Caley has been the big surprise of this section, storming up to the top of the charts despite having the lowest rating. This game is a "must see".
Bd 11 Marty Lower - Richard Jensen 0-1
A stunning Bishop move wins this game for Rich.
Bd 12 Chuck Ensey - Shaun Sweitzer 1-0
Oh boy, did I get lucky! Is it really better to be lucky than good as they say? Maybe...
Bd 13 Jason Qu - Hector Gonzalez 1-0
A very solid game from Jason, who is a force to be reckoned with and who is steadily gaining strength every month - That's scary for us older players!
Bd 14 Robert Samuel - Erik Marquis 0-1
Bob made some uncharacteristically strange moves in this game. Some nights you're just off, I know the feeling.
Bd 15 William Murray - Pouyan Azarshahri 0-1
Bill continues to fight like a tiger, but just can't close the deal for a win yet. In this game he had a golden opportunity. but it slipped through his fingers when he missed a shot to win the game (twice, it was there for 2 moves!)
