#194 Minkov Wins Summer Tournament

Ari Minkov (13.0) won the Kenilworth Summer Tournament last night; ahead of Greg Tomkovich (11.0) & Mark Kernighan (10.5).

While Mark was beating Ari & Greg was losing to Max Sherer, I tried to catch-up by playing a 2-board simul. Unfortunately, after winning against Jim Cole, I made a time-pressured, touch-move blunder in an equal position, lost to Joe Demetrick & finished 4th, at 10.0.

Max also upset Ed Selling to move past idle Pat Mazzillo & grab 5th place.

Here are 3 of the 5 last-round games in PGN; plus the final standings. I'll upload a replay page tonight.
