Paul Bartron wins again

Paul Bartron was the winner of the $100 dollar prize at the Evergreen Open in Tacoma on June 7, 2014. Though he played with stiff competition (he played against Arjun Thomas, H.G. Pitre and Joe Kiiru), he managed to win all three rounds in the modified tournament. Second place was a tie between Pitre, Thomas, and Kiiru. The last tournament with a $100 prize will be the Puget Sound Open on July 12 with four rounds. Maybe some more players will come to give Paul and the other players more competition. Paul has annotated his game against H.G. Pitre, and the game may appear in the August edition of Northwest Chess.

Five of the players in the Evergreen Open: Gary Dorfner, Steve Buck, H.G. Pitre, Joe Kiruu and Paul Bartron
