Cash Prize Chess Tournament!

Here's Rose, acting like a monkey before her first round at the Kansas City Chess Club.  It was her first USCF-rated tournament, and it lasted all afternoon.  She lost against two children and an adult, but she did manage to stalemate a high-school sophomore.  I call that good enough, especially as we skipped the morning "youth" section and played against the big boys.  Guess who coaches her...

Yep.  Here he is!  The winner of the "Reserve" section demonstrates a Karate Kid move with his winnings.  He and another player split the $75 cash prize.  Which was awesome because these two players are an even match.  They drew when they played during the first round.
