A mixed crowd of total of 65 players from North Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, and South Carolina participated in Reverse Angle 33 in memory of the late Ron Simpson. $800.00 is always guaranteed but it is no surprise the QCCA decided to give out over $1100.00 in prizes..
To commemorate Ron Simpson, those who won all their games received an additional $50.00. I had a few encounters with Ron myself and he was never content with a draw, he was a fighter, hence the 3-0 Simpson prize. One player in every section managed to win the Simpson prize and each pocketed $175.00 for their efforts. Between rounds I also offered free Game Analysis to any players interested. I had a lot of fun doing this and Ron, a man who was always “in” for game analysis, would have appreciated the gesture
Winners of the Simpson Prize (and $175.00!):
OPEN: Charlotte’s Michael Brown
U1800: Greensboro’s Garret Allen
U1400: Atlanta’s Carolyn Lantelme
U1100: Charlotte’s Logan Torve
See rated crosstable for all results.
