Stephan Desmoulin Wins President's Day G/10 Blitz Tournament

Congratulations to Stephan Desmoulin who won the Java Dock President's Day Blitz tournament held on February 24, 2014 (there was a one-week postponement due to weather).  Stephan was the "Commander in Chief", posting a perfect 5-0 score in the Open section over a strong field of seasoned players.   Jason Flanders finished second with 4-1.

Congratulations also go out to Tom Hudson, Hersh Singh and Alex Jentsch who tied for first in the Reserve Section, each with a 4-1 score.   After posting these results, Hersh is the new leader in our 2014 Grand Prix.

Participants traveled from as far north as Sheboygan and as far south as Franklin, Wisconsin to play in this fun event!  A total of 17 players participated.   Time control was G/10, d/5.  Entry was free and the event was not USCF rated.

Complete results are posted here. Tom Hudson adroitly handled TD duties once again.

Round 1 action.
