Becca Lampman (left) and Margaret Hua (right) before the Armageddon game
After 10 grueling blitz rounds, Becca Lampman of Washington State and Margaret Hua of Missouri were tied for 1st with the score of 9-1. They are co-champions of the 2013 SPF Girls’ Invitational Blitz Championship.
However, an Armageddon took place to determine who will get the trophy.
The rule is black gets 3 minutes and draw odd while white gets 5 minutes but must win. Becca won the coin toss and chose black. The game came all the way down to the endgame and Margaret won.
Congratulations to both!
