Like the late Larry Evans, both Will Wharton and Spencer Lower first rose to prominence in Arizona chess while juniors.
They have now tied for first in the Arizona Senior Championship held Nov. 13 and 14, 2010, in Tucson. They scored 4.5 out of 5 in the 5 round Swiss event, drawing only with each other while going undefeated. Will Wharton had the highest tiebreaks, which would be used only for purposes where only one person must be chosen. They are equal co-champions.
Congratulations to both!
