Abby wins!

It took 97 moves, and Abby reports that she barely had any time on her clock for the final hour (this is the benefit of the increment/delay time clock) but she was able to hold a draw in a difficult situation. She finished with a score of 5.5/6 to top the field and become the first female to win the Denker Tournament of High School Champions.

Congratulations, Abby! And not bad work by the rest of the field, either! There were a lot of good, hard-fought games.
