Eric Rosen takes Evanston Rapid

Some patzer who shall remain nameless was three pawns up against Eric in a rook ending time scramble (hint: it was the person who said he could have beaten Nakamura in Friday's two-pawns-up rook ending), but somehow Eric had the better position when a draw was agreed....  Eric won all his other games to finish with 4.5-0.5.  Evgeny Bulushev, Dmitry Sergatskov, and Jonathan Kogen tied for second with 4 points. 

Crosstable here.  A lot of these youngsters are underrated by 100+ points (if you don't play in many quick events, then your quick rating will lag behind your "slow" rating).
