Thanks for the games Jim. I only see three of Freeman's games and I think I copied everything you posted so far, but I am not sure.

If it's not incidental John typo, it looks on ChessArbiter like Alex Holmes lost both games to Joe Schwartz just one hour after round started. I am wondering - which one of my tips Alex ignored ?

This is a very tough tournament Alex. Your opponents have either been strong masters or grandmasters. You have won a couple of rounds against very strong players. You should be proud. I am very proud of you. Enjoy the rest of your games.

With few blunders - very high quality of games. People win only on exceptional things in the middle-end of game.

Congratulations to Lubabalo, nice impressive win and good preparation for upcoming QT on Barbados this fall. Rich and Jack also demonstrated very high grandmaster level and both are completely ready for QT in my eyes.

I visited today for few hours tournament and had a chance to watch and enjoy games from last 10th round. Hotel looks OK to me but I didn't live heare. ValuePlace across the road charge only $228 per week :D However playing room was big, full of fresh air and looks very nice.

My next tournament will be OH. Unfortunately I can't attend this year PA and mid-OH because this particular weekend we are moving Paul on campus to Saint Louis. Almost everyone asked me about match in Italy with Borghetti. Thanks everyone for support.

Congratulations to all participants in this highly competitive tournament! JohnAcker has done it again, first with the WCM, and now with the GAYP National!
