I see Pettytalk clipped me for third at the wire.

Well done( @Atlantis Rises @AtlantisRises,) & @Saru & @Pettytalk. AR and Saru are literally, according to data presented, twice the chess players most of us are. 

Big thank you to @joc and I hope your daughters graduation went swimmingly.

I am stepping back from RHP for a little while Dan as work is getting to be crazy busy. I will get back to our game when I get a chance. Thanks for your patience.

Congratulations to Atlantis, Saru, and Pettytalk!  :tu:

Also, congrats to Danydandan who launched an impressive study of the game and walked away a seasoned chess warrior with a commanding Honorable Mention!

And congratulations to everyone else who participated...you are all greatly appreciated for your time and efforts.  Chess is a demanding game...you all persevered and should be very proud of yourselves.  Not to get all philosophical but...Chess is a mirror of sorts to the game of Life.  Thank you all for your participation!  :)

You are the only other person besides myself who uses the word 'swimmingly'!  Graduation did go rather swimmingly...thanks! 

I would not be the least bit surprised if you come out on top of the Chess World.  It's not Rocket Science but then again...it kind of is.

It's orders of magnitude more complex than rocket science.

Glad to hear graduation went well.

Pettytalk

I agree with everyone's comments here, and I'm grateful for the lessons and conversations I had with each and every game I played. I had not played the game for decades, and the interest I had in the game as a child has been revived. I'm certain that this time decades will not pass again for the next stage in playing the game. Although it was obvious, as already stated, that we have among us two who are a cut above the others (the rest of us) we are all winners just for the privilege of having played with these two top winners.  And this may come across as my wanting to seem modest, nevertheless, the truth is that I find myself in third place by mere chance, and not for merit. 

I hope to be still alive and kicking for the next UM chess tournament, and I wish the same for all.

And a special thanks to Joc for all his volunteer work on managing the games, while also participating as a player.

I just have to make sure Saru, AR, EoT, Nuke and your good self don't play. Then I'll definitely be able to win.
