SD Team Championships

With the 2nd highest average rating in the 4 round tournament 'The Real Ones' proved they were for real as they beat the vig and edged out the 'Badland Pawns'. Since the 2 teams tied 2-2 in a heads up match in round 2 the other rounds would decide which team was better. Going into the last round the team to beat was 'The Heat' who held the only perfect score in the tournament. The Pawns cooled off 'The Heat' in round 4 by winning on 3 of the 4 boards with icy play in the rook-pawn end games on board 1 and 3.  Although 'The Real Ones' pinched a match win over 'Terry's Team' in round 4 with only 2.5 they ultimately stood to win on tie break rules with their impressive 4-0 performances in round 1 and 3.
