CLICK HERE for USCF Crosstable.

Two players topped the field with 4.5-.5 scores, Tian Sang and Joshua Sinanan. Joshua’s took an 1/2 point bye and Tian drew his game with Ethan Bashkansky. Fred and Carol Kleist handled the TD tasks. The event was held July 19-21, 2013 at the Seattle Chess Club.

Some history from USCF website: number of players in 2012=60, 2011=67, 2010=63, 2009=64, 2008=60. 82 was a good improvement.
