Ron Tiekert (Alpharetta, GA) defeats Chris Cree (Dallas, TX), 521-339. Interesting fact: this is the second game in the tournament in which Ron opened with the word TEAPOY (he did it also in Round 6 vs. Marlon Hill (Baltimore, MD)). He won both games, the first by 337 points and the second by 172!

Unhappy with the E distribution in his game with Ron Tiekert (Alpharetta, GA) (shown in last photo), Chris Cree (Dallas, TX) shows me his E, emphasis on the singular. Not that this was a tall tale or anything, but I overheard Ron saying he tracked Chris with four Es.
