James Morris has won the September 2013 Blitz Marathon!

Morris put in an impressive showing in the critical last rounds, while Baron appeared to have lost some of his earlier energy, dropping a few games. Nick Ilic did very well indeed and took away the rating prize. Final results: 

47.5 James Morris (IM)
46 Michael Baron (FM)
33.5 Jack Puccini
31= Frank Lekkas, Sylvester Urban
14.5 Nicholas Ilic
14 Goran Ilic
12.5 Philip Drew
2 Ben Frayle
