Seattle CC April Tornado Results

22 players took part in the event held at the club site on April 12 under the direction of Fred Kleist. The two master rated players in the tournament, Viktors Pupols of Kingston and William Schill of Seattle. Schill got 3.5-.5 while Pupols had 3-1. They drew their 4th round game. Since both played in Reno the weekend before and that event has not been rated yet the ratings for them should be changed in a rerate of this G/60 d5 time control event. This tornado event effects both ones regular USCF rating and quick rating.
