I tied for dead last with two
Congratulations to Max Villareal, who I believe was the only clear winner of a section. Max won Class C with a perfect 5-0, going from 1412 to 1598 in five games. (He was rated 1244 after the Chicago Open, then went from 1244 to 1412 at the Conitnental Americas Amateur--history here.) At this rate of progression, we expect to see him playing for the 2013 World Championship.
ICA Secretary Maret Thorpe picked up 97 Elo in the Under-1000 section. I kibitzed the under-1000 section a bit on Saturday: my impression is that most players with established ratings under 1000 have deflated ratings, simply because they're playing improving juniors in under-1000 sections.
More to follow....
