Even with the Very Cold weather we ended with the 10 Players. Even had two Players (Joseph Stetson & Roger Yang) showing up late and missing the first round. Maybe they did this to give the rest of the players as a chance. Because they was in the running to win the trophy. Joseph really ended up tie for 1st and came to a tie breaker that cost him to 2nd place. IF he would have played the first round which he might be able to get a win and also win or lost might have given him a higher tie breaker score.
Roger also had a strong showing, but also missed the first round. In his game in the 4th round was way ahead but lost his queen due to a blunder right before the clock ran out. He he lost the game by only 1 point. Then his second game was close game. IF only he played one more game, he had a chance to earn a medal.
