late night jousts ...

Attendance in the four-heat, late night event continued to climb and set a new record with its third straight triple digit field. Ivanhoe is easy to learn so there were plenty of players who were taught the game just prior to, or during, the tournament. The first heat drew 18 4-player games. Attendance lessened as the week progressed but never fell below 13 games per heat. As a new GM I quickly discovered that planning and organization is required for quick sign-ins and administration of a tournament of this size and I hope to improve in that area next year.

This year the semi-finals were expanded to five 5-player games from the four 4-player games of the previous year. When five of the qualifiers did not appear, five alternates replaced them. Matt Fetzer was the only player to win in all four heats, but timing is everything and he picked a poor time to lose his first game. Judy Wobbeking ended his winning streak and advanced to the Final. Ted Bohaczuk was next to earn a spot by besting GM Brian Mongold among others. A pair of fair damsels, Stephany Speck and Angela Hoffman, joined 2009 champ Keith Levy in completing the final quintet. Stephany was enjoying a Good week, having already won Formula Motor Racing, but her karma left her long enough for Keith to win his second title.
