Slipped Through the Cracks--Presque Isle, June 2011

11.19.11 There was a little five-player tournament back in June, 2011 that seems to have slipped through the cracks. Well we are happy to report that we are now making good on reporting this event albeit a bit late. Here's photos, a crosstable and a selected game from the June 2011 Presque Isle Open.
