2006 Nevada State Championship & North v South Team Match
Tonopah, Nevada, October 22, 2006

For the third year in a row the Southern Nevada team managed to hold onto the State Championship trophy, but for the third year in a row the margin of victory got even closer!  By virtue of the rule that the reigning champs retain the trophy in the case of a tie, the North and South match finished all square at 6-6 after 10 grueling hours in the usual setting of Tonopah.

However, this year the South could also boast having the State Champion as Virgil Reyes managed to beat out the Northern representative Eleuterio Alsasua on tie breaks after drawing their main time control games.
