While the Royale raged upstairs at Dan Burgess' home in Downers Grove, the Undercard game in the basement kicked off Season 6. The game ended after 1909 in a four-way, E/F/R/T draw. John Gramila, playing Turkey, topped the board with a 12-center Turkey, earning 47.059 points out of a possible 100 in the Sum of Squares system, which we're using to score games in Season 6. The final center counts were:
Austria (Roland Hackler): 0; 0 points.
England (Kevin O'Kelly): 7; 16.013 points.
France (Josh Kanto): 8; 20.915 points.
Germany (Don Glass): 0; 0 points.
Italy (Mike Morrison): 0; 0 points.
Russia (Eric Brown): 7; 16.013 points.
Turkey (John Gramila): 12; 47.059 points.
Gramila joined the club as a true newbie at a Guthrie's game in January. He has now topped two of his past four boards and appears to have joined the growing ranks of the club's up-and-coming players. We're glad to see it.
