    A near-record turnout on a truly awful weather day -- 10mm freezing rain -- is a good sign for the state of chess in Ottawa.

    Thanks to everyone who came out; let's hope your auto insurance doesn't go up as a result.

    Armando Valdizon won with 4.5/5.

    The phantom Aris Marghetis was =1st on the strength of four full-point byes, but had an inferior tie-break (the one weakness of full point byes). Sorry Aris, but no full point byes in the last round.

    No full point byes asked for or given today.


    Bill Doubleday showed that he grew up before Sesame Street was a TV staple, and so still has something to learn about sharing. As it is, he went 5/5 to win what was one of the smallest turnouts ever for an RA Sunday Rapid... a small price to pay for the first nice weather of the year in Ottawa, IMHO.

    Same time next week.
