Hello fans! Sorry about the lack of news on the blog yesterday, you would think with 4 hours per round to kill you would have ample time to blog, but its amazing how quick it goes. The official website for the tournament, www.supernationalsiv.com is doing a great job of posting results after the rounds have concluded. I recommend checking the site for updates on team score and individual standings.
I was able to obtain media credentials (hey I am a web journalist) and can roam in the tournament room with the officials. Super Genius!
Here is a quick update:
Team - 1st our of 15 teams, the next team is 5 points behind us. We have 16.5 points. Our magic number is 20 points. With that score, no other team can catch us.
Stephen Lacina 2nd place overall (still undefeated with 4 wins and 1 draw)
Brampton Bridgman 5th
Josiah Moore 9th
Josiah Weeks 12th
Tim Chester 19th
Mathew Howe 24th
We occupy board 2, 3, 4, and 5 this next round!
Team - 4th out of 25 teams
William Gentry 11th overall. His is still undefeated with 3 wins and 2 draws
Team - 5th out of 30 teams. (not bad after starting in 17th)
we have a great chance to move up this round
Alexander Moore 13th
7th out of 36 teams, tough 5th round but we have a great chance to move up in the 6th round
Tommy Palmer 22nd
