2018 September Third Weekend FIDE Tournament

Janos Fucsko finished the Third Weekend tournament going undefeated.  His last round draw clinched First place!  Michael Presutti was second.  His only loss was to Janos.  Jameson Tang worked as Chief TD assisted by George Lundy.  Side events included a six round Fischer Random contest using six different starting positions.  Jameson Tang won the event with a perfect score of 6-0!  Jameson also won the blitz event scoring 4-2 or was it 5-1?  Hum….  As they say in Sun Valley <insert Austrian accent here>  I’ll be back … in October.  }:-)  Thanks for coming everyone!  George
