Congratulations to Alex Moiseyev, who retains the state title, and also to John Herberger for winning the two-player B division.  All players played as one group using 3-move. Format was round-robin (Sonneborn-Berger tie-breaks) scored by game, and complemented our standard Ohio State 7 round tournament format.  Prize fund was $700 and awarded to the top 7 places.  Contributions were received from Joe LoConti $390, Joe McDaniel $200, Rich Beckwith $30, plus Alan Millhone donated $20 toward expenses and the entry fees made possible the total cash prize fund.  Before-Rate stands for player's rating before this tournament and After-Rate stands for player's rating after this performance has been re-calculated for a new rating. The capital prefix letters before player's name designates his status assigned by WCDF. GM stands for Grand Master, IM for International Master, and CM for Candidate Master, which are earned titles given by WCDF to distinguish players. The "T" separates the player's opponent from his game points won that round. We appreciate our contributors, Richard Beckwith as the director of the Ohio State Tournament, and serving as our referee / score-keeper.   Beckwith's 2014 Ohio W-D-L Cross-Table
