Milestones: Prizes for Summer Swiss:

Here Can Be Heard Glimmerings of Eternity: 'Enrico Caruso - Una Furtiva Lagrima'

Revised, Saturday 30 July 2011, per 3rd email from Roger. Thank you:

'In a chess tournament for cash prizes, prizes are split amongst the
winners and a winner must receive their largest prize.

'1st Radomskyj $150
2nd/ 3rd ($100/ $50) Zilbermintz and Arias $75 each
Top Under 1900 ($75) with 3 points Garrett and Prettyman ($37.50 each
Top Under 1700 ($50) with 3 points Korn (giving Korn the most money)
Top Under 1500 ($35) with 2.5 points Hochheiser (since Korn has a prize)'

Initial Post, Friday 29 July 2011:

'Radomskyj 1st - $150
Zilbermintz and Arias 2nd/3rd $75 each
? Fermin Arias Under 1900 $75
Korn Under 1700 $50
? Hochheiser U1500 $35'
