Not surprisingly, the final tune-up before WDC went to someone named Bryan. There were, after all, three of them in the game.
Game No. 303, played yesterday at Pete McNamara’s home in Evanston, went the distance, ending by time limit after the Fall 1912 turn in a five-way draw. The final center counts were:
Austria (Matt Sundstrom): 0; 0.000 points.
England (Jack Sundstrom): 3; 3.409 points.
France (Brian Shelden): 0; 0.000 points.
Germany (Bryan Pravel): 10; 37.879 points.
Italy (Brian Beck): 9; 30.682 points.
Russia (David Spanos): 5; 9.470 points.
Turkey (Pete McNamara): 7; 18.561 points.

Game No. 303 was our longest of the season, and as I wasn’t there, I can’t possibly do it justice. I hope the players will provide some color.
