3.5-.5 was reached by both Steven Breckenridge and Nick Raptis. They drew with each other in round 3. At 3-1 was Aaron Grabinsky who lost in round 4 to Breckenridge.
Jazon Samillano with 3.5-.5 won clear first place in the 16 player lower section.
Mike Janniro and Mike Morris handled the TD tasks.
Your reporter was at the playing site in Spokane for awhile on the Saturday of the event and took some random photos. I am sure there were others with cameras there and if I find links to more photos I will add them to this post.
