Ashland XLI Rd2

Round 2 of Ashland XLI had a similar theme of high tension and hard fought chess.  After two hours of chess 8 games were still being played.

On board 1, NM Sam Copeland defeated Ben Caiello to move to 2 points.  Leo Rabulan converted in the endgame to defeat Ian Bell to move to 2 points as well.  Keith Eubanks defeated Olga Szekely and Chris Labrecque defeated Zoltan Szekely to round out the Top section.

In the Under Section, there is a log jam for first place with 4 tied with 1.5 points.  Mark Woodman and Jonathan Lober were the last game going and agreed to disagree, ending in a draw.  Gauthan Tuppale and Richard Watts played a tough game with Tuppale claiming the point.  Marty Anderson claimed the point from Birney Blind and Elizabeth Yankovsky defeated Jared Whiting.
