Original Post:

Could this be it???

Our co-champions from last year share a 2.5 point first place.  If either wins tonight (assuming they play each other, which is virtually certain,) the 1st Place Champion has been determined.  However, there are four players with two points sitting right behind – tiebreaks seem certain for second and/or third place, and for first place if our leaders draw.  But we won’t know until the final round of regular play completes on Monday, March 26th.

Last call for players 7:15 PM sharp – the final pairings for Round 4 are made at 7:15.  Games begin 7:30 PM.   The phone number, if you are going to be up to a half hour late and want to be paired is 309-336-0103; you may leave a message if necessary and it will count.  Please note the 7:15 time will be strictly enforced for the remainder of the tournament – if you have not called on Monday or are not physically present and checked in at 7:15 you will not be paired.

Byes for Round 4 had to be elected before Round 3 was paired.
