Friday Night Blitz

March 2nd,

This Friday the “house”, made up of NM Ian Harris and Melvin Patrick, was challenged by Expert Alex Eydelman and Julio Maldonado. Things were looking good for the challengers as Maldonado split his match with Harris. Meanwhile, Eydelman defeated Patrick twice, setting up a crucial last round showdown. Harris, a full point behind Eydelman needed to win both games in order to clinch 1st place. However, Eydelman is an extremely dangerous player and has scored well against Harris over the past few weeks. Harris rose to the occasion and managed to recover from his loss to Maldonado by winning both games against Eydelman and thus winning the tournament!
