|Ken L accepting his Upset Award from TD Jeff Aldrich|
I also want to give some credit where credit is due. Jeff Aldrich did a fantastic job as Tournament Director. Thanks Jeff!
Mike S played rock solid all the way thru against higher rated players every round. His last round win was text book at grinding away a small advantage to victory.
Matt T was on fire early and played way above his rating performance wise! To play this well against that field, after a pretty long layoff from tournament chess, was remarkable!
Ken L won the Biggest Upset Award – beating a player rated almost 600 points higher than him! Nice job Ken!
