In the under 1400 tournament played in conjunction with the recently concluded National Open each and every player in the section, all 14 of them, won money. I've never seen that before at any 'national' tournament. Four players tied for first place. Three of them won $1,200, while the other won only $800. Now, that's a story waiting to be told!
