Caiello leads Open Section, Mayfield in control of the Amateur Section heading into the Final Round!

 An all-time low turnout of six players battled in the Penultimate Round of Ashland XXXV.  Ben Caiello (2040) outlasted a hard fighting Paul Potylicki (1534) to continue leading the Open Section heading into the final round next week.

In the Amateur Section, Mike Mayfield (1496) settled peacefully with David Stoner (UNR) as Richard Watts (1200) and Jared Whiting (1036) split the point.

The Final Round is Thursday, Oct 31 and this will be end of rated play for this year. The club will meet for casual play through Nov & Dec with rated play resuming in Jan. Be sure to check back or follow us on Twitter for possible Blitz, Bughouse or Chess 960 tournaments in Nov or Dec.
