Round 3, A Night of Upsets!!

Eighteen players battled in the Third Round of the Club Championship and ratings didn't mean much as there were three upsets and a draw.

Ben Caiello (2032) took control of Board 1 and stands alone at the top moving a step closer to his first Club Championship with an upset win over Two Time Club Champion Philipp Lamby (2222). James MacDougall (2027) took care of business on Board 2 with a win over Mike Mayfield (1367) and will try to capture Board 1 from Ben in the penultimate round next week. Adam Shaw (1818) won over Christian Dunlap (1047) and will face Randall Gingerich (1525) on Board 2 next week after Randall scored the upset win over Leo Rabulan (2085) in the evening's longest fight.

Gil Holmes (1832) wore down a stubborn James Price (1246) and Chris Labrecque (1667) outlasted Birney Blind (1242). Shaun McCoy (1414) scored the win over Mark Woodman (1026), Josh Lewer (1389) settled peacefully with Jordan Anderson (1245) and Andrew Manion (1326) upset Dan Quigley (1807).
