Robert L. Froemke Memorial Chess Tournament Results

What a weekend! It was long (for me anyway), but we had a very successful tournament. First, I want to thank all the players that came out and supported the first USCF rated tournament in Tallahassee in over 11 years. Also, I want to thank Gamescape for hosting the tournament (at no cost to us).

There was some exciting chess on the boards this weekend. I hope many of you will submit your games for posting. Just email them to me (with or without analysis).

We had 20 players register for the tournament and 7 of them took home some money and 6 took home trophies. We paid out a total of $1,115.16 in cash prizes.

There was a three-way tie for overall first place between Bryan Tillis, Jon Sanford, and Colin Dougherty. Bryan took home the trophy for First Place on tie-breaks, Jon took Second Place and Colin Third Place. They split the prize money of $818.19, each receiving a check for $272.73.

In the Under 1700 category, Will Ebaugh took clear First Place (U1700) followed by Jonathan Walker with Second Place (U1700). There was a tie for Third Place (U1700) between Bruce Froemke and Bill McTigue who split the cash prize, but Bruce had better tie-breaks and was awarded the trophy for Third Place (U1700). Cash prize for 1st U1700 was $169.70, for 2nd U1700 was $84.85 and 3rd U1700 was $42.42 (which was split between Bruce and Bill each receiving $21.21).
