Karpovs top Summit

In their season opener for the GSCL, the Karpovs pulled out a tight away match against their Route 22 rivals, Summit. With league MVP Steve Stoyko suffering his first loss in well over a year after a surprise mistake, the pressure was on the lower boards. Max 'the young executioner' Sherer let his man off the hook on board 3 after being two pawns up in an opposite color bishop endgame, so with the match tied at 1.5 each, everything rode on Joe 'The Closer' Demetrick on board 4, with time pressure looming. And then...

As they said, take a bow, son, take a bow.

Fun fact #1: Black scored 3.5/4 in the match
Fun fact #2: Two queens were simultaneously hanging for two moves each on board 2. Caliente!
