#249 Checkmate Championship - Round 1

NM Mark Kernighan and unrated Joe Azzarello lead after round 1 of the Checkmate CC Championship. Both, however, were a bit lucky. Mark's opponent missed a repetition & Joe's resigned in a defendable position! Defending champion Ari Minkov, who I played & drew, heads a 4-way tie for third.
