Brandon Fogel topped his second straight board Wednesday at the Red Lion, increasing his lead in the standings. He also took over first place in the Bar Room Brawl. The game was the fourth straight in which Fogel finished with at least a share of the board-top.
Game No. 302 ended by draw vote during the Spring 1907 turn in the following center counts:
Austria (Pete McNamara): 2; 1.439 points.
England (Bryan Pravel): 0; 0.000 points.
France (Brandon Fogel): 11; 43.525 points.
Germany (Josh Heffernan): 0; 0.000 points.
Italy (David Spanos): 6; 12.950 points.
Russia (Geoff Serednesky): 9; 29.137 points.
Turkey (Jake Trotta): 6; 12.950 points.
The supply center chart is here. McNamara was playing his first league game of the season. He’ll host the last game before WDC on Sunday. We’re guaranteed a new board-topper for that one, as Fogel won’t be playing.
A total of nine players showed up for Red Wedesday. Christian Kline and I sat out. Eventyally Pravel and Heffernan joined us for a game of Nyet.
