NELS W TRUELSON wins the 2015 Paul Salem Sioux Falls Open with 4.5/5.0

USCF results here

I went 3-1 (1st round bye)

I was on board 2 in round 4 and had this wonderful opportunity to get a winning advantage. It was a classic case of, "if you see a good move, look for a better one". 
Even after that I had a good chance to play for a win, but played defence, when I should have been attacking, and lost the game.  Jerome went on to draw WGM CAMILLA BAGINSKAITE in round 5, and tied for 2nd place.  Well done Jerome! He is back after a 10 year break!
