Flanders Dominates July G/10 Blitz Event

Congratulations to Jason Flanders who won the July 15 G/10 Blitz tournament with a perfect 5-0 score!  Due to other commitments, Flanders has been less active on the Wisconsin tournament scene lately but he has found a niche at the ORCA blitz events.  Joe Hernandez and Steve Etzel tied for second with a 4-1 score each. 

A total of 17 players participated in this free, non-rated event, which was held at the Java Dock cafe in Port Washington.  The tireless Tom Hudson once again served as Tournament Director.
