Congratulations to FIDE Master Andrew Karklins of Chicago, who tied for first in the event with GM Ben Finegold (the new Grandmaster-in-Residence at the St. Louis Chess Club), FM Peter Bereolos (known to many Chicagoans of my generation as a close friend of the late Senior Master Bill Colias), and Seth Homa.  Here's the crosstable.
