72nd Indiana State Chess Championship

 

Congratulations to the 2013 Co State Champions, Luis Flaquer and John Cole

 

Flaquer and 2012 State Champion, Cole finished with 4.5 out of 5 drawing only each other.
Both made short work of potentially dangerous opponents in Round 1(click to view Smith,W-Flaquer)
and Round 2(click to view Smith,G-Cole).
When the top two seeds squared off in Round 3(click to view Cole-Flaquer) a topsy-turvy draw was the result and both players won out in the final rounds.

Special thanks to Tournament Directors Steve Steppe & Roger Blaine
and all the volunteers that helped make this event a success.
