In Round 2, Jorge Zhang had to leave before his game ended. Thus, he scored zero points for the round, per tournament rule.

The Windy City is named for leaders full of hot air. The Windy City award goes to R2-B1 for 7 votes before a player was eliminated in 1910 and 11 draw votes before the game ended -- a taste of our Sneak meetings.

Creative play - R3-B3. Perhaps inspired by the Yorkshire Pudding, Kevin O’Kelly created what shall hearby be known as the "Götterspeise" maneuver by bouncing all of his armies in Kiel. Götterspeise is a German pudding known as the "food of the Gods." Side note, on the same board, Jorge Zhang built 3 armies on the English islands and ordered the actual Yorkshire pudding, preventing Ted Tanner’s France from taking his centers and a potential tournament win.

Icarus - Hunter Katcher for 8 center Austria in 1996 on R2-B1 and ending with nothing.

Lazarus - Tony Prokes for 2 center Turkey in 1905 on R2-B1 to end on an 8-center board top.

Best stab - lots of bypassed stab opportunities, was considering nominating Jorge for making the TD play the Karaoke game. Chris Martin had a great 3-center stab of Paul Pignotti, which we Weasels always support, but Thaddaeus’ stab of France in 1904 on R2-B2 gave him the centers to go from 7 to 12 in three years.
