Yes, it was unfortunate for Charles; he had to forfeit the game after an hour and a half. He had car problems.
OUCH!!! That's why there is an "F" on the USCL score chart
YES!!! MIami wins on board 4! I was right when I said Rosenthal would win!! As you said WIlliam, he has wins against higher rated players
Yes, he has been doing awesome in the playoffs!
By a 3 - 1 margin of victory, the New England Nor'easters have won the match, and are the 2010 United States Chess League Champions!

IM dpruess - (NE) = 1 game

ChessMarkstheSpot - (NE) = 1 game
FM Kacparov - (NE) = 1 game
mottsauce - (NE) = 1 game

pdela - (MIA) = 0 games
This week, seven out of the eight members who predicted did so correctly. The final score of the match was 3 - 1. We had two members who predicted that score correctly. Since we only had one game this week, we cannot calculate scores beyond this. Also, because we do not have any prizes to give out in the weekly contest (we stopped giving out weekly prizes after week 10), we have two winners this week!
Championship winners are: IM dpruess and vowles_23 Congratulations!
Thanks mottsauce! Sometimes, when I change to bold text and add color, it seems to mess up the wording after it.
