After two rounds at the Bapst Impromptu #11, the tournament's highest-rated and top seeded player Aaron Spencer was well on his way to a 3-0 rout of his competitors. Wyatt Hendrix, however, had other ideas. Hendrix defeated Spencer in their last round encounter and Benjamin Mock beat Nathan Gates which resulted in a three-way tie for first.

Behind the three leaders with 2.0 points came Gates and Michael Dudley with 1.0 point and Michael Murphy (scoreless).

The free section of the tournament attracted three siblings! Walker, Tala, and Francis Bayless finished with 2.0, 1.0, and 0.0 points respectively.
