Ernie Weaver defended an inferior position to beat Jerry Weldin on time with one second left on his clock on the way to scoring a perfect three for three to win the May Rating Tournament.
Johnny Owens was the only other player to go undefeated; scoring 2.5 points for second place, only yeilding a draw to Joe Farrell.
New member Gelvic Cubar took clear third with 2 points after falling into a trap in the Budepest against Jerry in the first round.
Ten players showed up to do battle to include James Lawson who drove down from Louisville. We all met James at our Egg salad Tournament.
Ming Loi broke out of his "provisional rating status" and now owns an official rating of 1142.

Picking up two new players made everything worthwhile tonight; but they are tough so consider yourselves warned!
