Round 5 TCCC Championship

Round 5 was played on February 21st, 2011.  It was indeed a critical round in the Championship, but in unexpected ways.

In the open, Joe Alford and Dennis Bourgerie drew their game.  Joe is now at 4.5 and Dennis is now at 3.5.  Joe can gain 5.0 with a win next week and his draw dropped as worst result, but either a draw or loss will be dropped as worst result, making Joe’s minimum possible score 4.5.  Dennis has the capability with a win next week of reaching 4.5.

Surya Kopula won his game due to a time forfeit, bringing his score to 4.0.  Surya also has a chance at a 5.0 score.

Niranjan Panneerselvam won his game against Chris Morgan, and Hanson Hao won against Wes Laudenslager.  Niranjan and Hansen are now tied at 3.0 in the scholastic category.

There are now seven players under 1200 with a 2.0 score:  Nikhil Pallem, Ray Arquette, Michael Boyle, Michael Bishop, Wesley Laudenslager, Chris Morgan, and newcomer L.T. Thompson (who has gone two for two so far.)

Crosstable and original announcement follows the cut.
