19 battle it out at the $15 Open

 Maximus Lu took first in the open section with a 3.5 out of 4 score. The performance took him over 1800 for the first time. Congratulations are also in order for Ben Palmer who recently graduated up from winning the under section regularly who took down Kelsey Liu in round 4. A nearly 400 point upset. 

Ella Zhang took first in the 76er section with a perfect score. The performance improved her rating and she is back to within a couple points of her sister who struggled with the increased competition in the Open section. Peter Marston may be one to watch out for. The adult improver got 2 wins in his first OTB tournament and should have had three wins as your author won on time from a clearly losing position.
