Raven Sturt Wins Fide Thursdays in Dramatic Finish

The Marshall Chess Club Fide Thursdays tournament came down to the wire when event leader Zahar Hilkevich lost his queen in extreme mutual time pressure against Marshall member George Berg. Both players had less than one minute remaining in a position that, according to George, was "probably drawn."

Zahar's misfortune gave the tournament victory to Raven Sturt, the highest rated player of the event, after a win against Paulo Santanna.
