Evansville Octos

by Craig Hines


Hello all, Dallas Loven of Evansville went 3-0 to win the 15 player tnt here on sat., August 10th [2014]. This was the most players we have had in awhile.


I put the bottom 4 players by rating in their own Quad with their own Prize Fund which they really appreciated. Nazar Karzay, a retired electronics professor won that, again 3-0 and promptly used his winnings to turn his 3 month membership into a full year USCF membership.


Top seeded Dale Pollitt(1939) lost in Rd. 2 to Bob Meacham of Owensboro, KY. In his last 3 tournaments Bob's rating went 1300`s, 1600`s to 1700`s for this tnt. Bob lost to Dallas in Rd. 3.

I am sending some pictures and games to Drew for the website. Here is how everyone finished:
