Nevada State Championship, 2002
& North-South Team Match

September 27-28, 2002 - Tonopah, NV

Nevada State Championship, 2002

In this year's championship, Jerry Weikel defeated Greg Niemi 1- to clinch what I think is his 3rd time winning the state title. In game one, Jerry accepted a pawn sacrifice to win a rook and minor piece ending. Game two was a short draw.

North-South Team Match

In this annual event in Tonopah, 8 players complimented teams from the metropolitan Reno and Las Vegas area. The South team out-rated the North team on several boards. The first set of games ended in a 4-4 tie. Emory Tate beat Arkia Bayati and Mike Patraw won very quickly against Milos Filipas. Christiansen and N. Arteaga won for the North team. In the second set of games, the North team scored seven victories, with only Norm Harvey drawing a second time. M. Filipas returned the favor and beat Mike Patraw very quickly. Alan Amici overlooked a mate by V. Reyes and George Fischer played the whole two time controls to beat John Trivett in sudden death in a very long Queen ending. The South team also featured the mark of youth on several boards!
