"Where the heck....!?"

This was the first question I asked when I saw this one in Chess Life's TLA (you know, back before the interwebs..when you actually had to look in the magazine for tournament listings). Wentworth is a small town about 30 minutes north of Greensboro and aside from being out in the middle of nowhere, it was a very nice playing site. I wasn't too sure what to expect as far as turnout, but this series actually drew some pretty big crowds. Big enough that, had it not been for an abundance of 2nd round draws, I would have split 1st with my perfect 3-0-0.

Round 1, Game #192

Round 2, Game #193

Round 3, Game #194
