IM Angelo Young and NM Trevor Magness tied for first in yesterday's Downers Grove Chess Club #8 with 3½-½ scores. In the final round, Young downed tournament leader NM Pete Karagianis, while Magness beat Mikhail Korenman.

11-year-old Rachel Ulrich (post-event rating 1714) beat NM Steve Tennant. Tennant crushed me in the CICL playoffs a couple months ago. Hmm.
