Great Falls Open 2017 - Round 5

In the final round I faced Gary Solomon, the tournament director and a player who continues improving. In Round 3 against Jim Skovron he had a strong game and could have won rather than drawn, which is better than I did, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Fortunately, the game flowed naturally and broke my way when Gary cracked under pressure, but I'm sure he'll be back.

Scott and I split our first-prize money, happy to know that the Missoula players came out on top. Missoula will host the Open next month, so let's hope we can duplicate this feat.
