Friday Night Action

April 20th,

This Friday featured two sections. The first was a three game match between strong masters Nelson Castaneda and Daniel Lowinger. Castaneda travelled a long distance to play and Lowinger had just finished a long day of work, but both were determined to win at all costs! Castaneda won the first game. Lowinger nearly struck back in the second game but after a late inaccuracy had to settle for a draw. Castaneda brought home the victory by winning the final round!

The second section was a six player swiss. With many young and new players, it was anyone’s guess who would win. Would it be the top seeded Melvin Patrick, or the recently resurgent David Kniffin, or perhaps the unknown Richard Arnold? After two rounds Patrick was the only player with two points and he looked poised to take home the sole victory, but a final round loss to Noah Arthurs created a three way tie at the top between Patrick, Arthurs and Kniffin!
