The Octopus wins the Idaho Open

The Octopus
Greg Nowak (a.k.a. the octopus) wins the Idaho Open with 3.5 points.  Mr. Nowak is from Montana and appreciates his nickname so much that bumper stickers were made in his honor:  "I lost to the Octopus, but I his genius rubbed off!"
Sean Manross(left) came from Cali to play
Other than being so tired after coaching soccer and then driving 3 hours to the tournament, I cannot explain my Saturday losses, but I am very glad that I ended in 8th place after Sundays wins.  Whew!  I was ready to hang up my kings and queens after this confidence shaker!
Miles and Desmond learned a lot at  this tournament
Overall, the tournament was very hard with a tough Utah contingent of kids and adults that rattled the Idaho regulars and brought much needed diversity of play to the Open.
