2013 Club Ch – Rd 5!

The clock may have struck midnight on Abhinav Suresh’s Cinderella turn with his loss to John Stepp in Round 5.  Stepp downed the tournament leader in a sharp tactical game, opening the door for John Linscott to charge to the top of the leader board with his win over Steven Cusumano. 

Tony Dutiel and David Sparks join Suresh and Stepp in a large tie for second place at 3.5/5.  Dutiel defeated John Hartmann in a battle of the annotators after an opening surprise and a complicated middlegame.  Sparks continued his impressive run with a nice win over Dan Wolk.

Towards the bottom of the table, Eylon Caplan notched his first victory of the tournament with a win against Brendan Forsling.  Jon Reigenborn took advantage of some opening infelicities and defeated John McElderry, and Thomas Freed won against Rich Gruber with a crafty middlegame trap.
