2014 Montana Closed
David "Cool Hand" Duke prevailed once again in Montana's championship arena. David's Friday night journey to Bozeman almost ended 25 miles short with a mule deer meets automobile head-on collision. Despite the subsequent and expensive cab ride, sleep deprivation, and the nagging question of "how will I get back to Billings to the task of supervising 10 attorneys (think 'herding cats')Monday morning?", David rode out the 5-game schedule without a loss and took claim to sole possesion of the 2014-2015 Montana Chess Association Championship.
2013 Montana Closed
Jim Skovron (Great Falls) drew with the 2012 Montana Champion Lukas Geyer (Bozeman) in the last round of the 2013 Montana Closed, and both individuals share the title for the upcoming year. Each exited the six-man round robin tournament with 3.0 points. Wil Strickland and Michael Jensen, both from Missoula, trailed the two top finishers by a half of point. There were seven draws in the fifteen game event. The most impressive being Sherwood Moore's (1682) draw with Geyer (2046).
