  lostemperor: <Penguincw> showed he can also win another ranker again than his favorite Pair Bettings!! Still he also took that ranker in the process! Together with a second place in the Absolute ranker. <Golden Executive> won the Absolute Ranker!! <Aurora> (absolute ranker), <Scout118> (square ranker), <alfamikewhiskey> (pair bettings) took second places and bronze for <Diadamas>! 

Apr2821
  OhioChessFan: Thanks Yoda. 

Apr2821
  Penguincw: Woo, I actually won a Ranker other than Betting Ranker. To be honest, I didn't think I could do it. Now, I do wish I knew where I stand overall.
But hey, congrats to the other medalists, thank you so much <lostemperor> for finishing this tournament. Hope to see you next time, which may be Biel (JulAug), Sinquefield (Aug) or Norway (Sep). 

Apr2921
  WinKing: Great show <lostemperor> as always! Congrats to all the medal winners!
I have updated the Gold medal count in my forum. Just because I didn't play in this tournament doesn't mean I'm slackin' in my duties. ;) Hope to see you all at the next event.
