Lake Effect Trophy in Michigan

Organizing a tournament in winter in Michigan is what makes Grand Rapids TSC’s Lake Effect Trophy special. Even heavy snow accumulation on Sunday, February 11, could not stop Paul Pate and Joe Legatz from driving 70 miles (120km) from Grand Rapids to East Lansing! Four players completed a round robin, and then in the semifinals Paul beat Joe 1-0 on a spectacular long shot, while Peter defeated newcomer Bernardo Maestrini. In the final, Peter ran away with the match against Paul in the second half to claim the 2018 Lake Effect Trophy. In the consolation final, Joe beat Bernardo to take third place.
