While the Joy of Tournaments Site gave the Impromptu results as you have them, they announced Matt Zuckermann (who you have as 2nd) as the winner at the actual awards ceremony.

Thank you for making the correction!  I've gone ahead and moved Zuckermann to first (and thus switched Gwynn Ballard (Pelham Memorial) to second).  I hope that's now 100% correct; in the process of double checking.

Thank you again!

Impromptu (Top 6 Listed)

1. Matt Zuckermann (Fordham Prep)

2. Gwynn Ballard (Pelham Memorial) didn't get anything, this is listed by order of how they did in prelims, not cumulative.

3. Mick Zloof (Stuyvesant) actually got 2nd place

4. Patrick McCormick (Chaminade) actually got 3rd

5. Mary Drucker (Academy of the Holy Names)

6. Jack Barton (Regis)

everyone moves up one place, except Jack Barton

Max Liebeskind from stuyvesant high school got fifth place

not 100% sure about mary... you can do the calculations yourself if you don't believe me.

Alright, I have e-mailed the contact for this Tournament as listed on Tabroom (my source of the results) to request the proper rank order just to be completely sure.  When I have the correct results I will update the page.  Thank you for notifying me of the inaccuracy!   

And thank you everyone for your patience as this Impromptu debacle is worked out.
