#128 Checkmate Championship - Round 4

Ari Minkov (3.5) took over first place last night with a win over Juan Huaman (3.0) & can clinch his 2nd Checkmate title with a victory against last-placed Bert Shiffman in next week's final round.

In the other games, Bob Sherry (2.5) beat Ted Mann (1.0) to keep his hopes alive & I defeated Shiffman (0.0), to even my score at 2-2.

Unfortunately, in all 3 contests, the outcomes were clear by move 21 (turn 10 in my case) & the losers dragged things out unnecessarily.

Here's the tournament crosstable; plus all the action from rounds 1-4 in Java-Relay & zipped PGN.
