Indiana State Championship

Lee Savage

Indiana State Finals were held the twenty-first of November, at the Indianapolis convention center. The format was standard, with seven rounds of swiss. 128 people were in the main tournament, falling one player short of the eight round mark. Registration ended at 10:15, and the play began at 10:30. Team Sexual Chocolate judged the event, with our usual group. Mitch Smithson, lIII, was the head judge and t.o. In addition, Myself (lII), Jenny Ulman (lII), Dave Mallash (lII), Rick Dean (lI), and Jim Hall (t), were present to judge. Several side events began on round two, and we continued to post them throughout the day. From the questions asked of judges, the players still have trouble understanding the stack. We tried to explain these the best we could. Questions arouse about the scent cards. Do you reveal the x cards on resolution or announcement. (resolution). In round four, three tables were deck checked, and every table had at least one problem. The system does work, and it was handled accordingly. An apology must be made on my part. I incorrectly answered a question dealing with powder keg and contamination. This decision cost the player a game, but didn't effect the outcome of the tournament. (It was round 2). In the quarterfinals, Mike Jeffers defeated Jon Wright,Granger Peterson (the returning champ) defeated Matt Lackey, Klaus Huebert won over Steve Zimmerman, and Judah Alt beat Kerry Stump. In the finals, Granger defended the title of State Champ against Klaus. In the end, Granger became the first ever repeating state champ.
