Ashley Sweeps "Four Rated Games Tonight"

GM Maurice Ashley went 4-0 to win the Thursday January 29 edition of "Four Rated Games Tonight" by a full point over the 24-player field. I'd say GM Ashley is back in form now.

Second place was a 4-way tie between FM Asa Hoffman,, NM Yevgeni Margulis, NM Daniel Lowinger, and Raven Sturt, all with 3-1. The result appears to put Sturt over 2200 for the first time, earning him his National Master title. Congrats!
