Although some of the players pre-registered for Sunday didn’t show up, “probably due to weather concerns,” tournament organizer Rick Mott reports that the final turnout for the 2-day tournament was 170, “still about 40 players above our previous record.”

Five game winners ($90 prize) are Meng Zhiyong (5d), Adam Connell (2k), Kasidet Hiranniramol (3k), Monsoon Shrestha (4k), Wan Shen (5k), Richard Cronin (8k) and Eric Swain (16k).
