The Washington State President’s Cup took place February 15th and 16th at the Seattle Chess Club. 68 players took part. The event ended in a three way tie for first. Peter Lessler of Seattle , Samuel He of Redmond, WA and Patrick Van Dyke of Maple Valley, WA each ended up with 3.5 points. Samuel He came out on top and took the seed into the 2015 Premier event by coming out on top in a grueling blitz playoff match that went into double overtime. The event was held as a replacement for the Invitational tournament, so more people could watch the State Championship and Premier which was going on at the same time.
