The final LRTTC monthly tournament of 2015 was held Saturday, December 19, at the Jim Dailey Fitness & Aquatic Center with predictable results from the six player giant round robin.  The top three seeds; Mike, Primal and Siva; placed first, second and third, though Jeff gave Siva a tough run in their first round five-gamer.  Jeff also won the “most bang for his buck” award playing a total of 20 games in five matches.  The field was rounded out by Charlie and Suresh

The event was adequately managed by Mark (who would have played but was infirmed) in his role as Co-director of tournaments.  The next monthly tournament will be held January 16, and will be a best of three games to 21 handicap event using USATT ratings.

The tournament photos and results from RatingsCentral.com will be posted later.
