Another 1st Round Route
United States - The B bracket played its first round match of the NNA's Nertz tournament this evening at 6:41 p.m. CST and again one player dominated the table. NNA member and officer Nate Nelson breezed through this game winning by a substantial margin. Two players missed out of action as computer opponent's played for them. While the fourth player, Carol Phillips, experienced connection problems and still finished in second place.
On that same note, the tournament director who recorded the game ran into a problem when his video recording software experienced an error during the compression the game's video file. Thus, all of the scores and screen shots were lost. The result of this happening is now there will not be a box score to show Nate's victory.
