Isler plays two tight fights
Blue Glove Open: Spring 2023, Week 4
The Player of the Week award goes to Lara Isler, who may have the chance to double it for a rare distinction next week. Twice she battled to dramatic 8-6 finishes, winning one and falling just short in the other.
She eclipsed Ted Wang, who almost reached the final of her new Group C. On Friday evening, Andrew Liu fought for the close victory over Isler.
Coming up, she'll face Sidney Immergut for the Group D Final on Friday night in a rare spring primetime matchup. She's slated for a number of matches again, showing the potential that playing often can unlock.
Elsewhere, Devin Leung's victory placed him third in Group C, behind Parker Javdan and Paisley Fromer on winning percentage alone.
Meanwhile, in the Group D from which Isler was promoted last season, Zaki Rajkumar earned the first win of his nascent BGO career. He defeated another newcomer, Henrik Chilton, playing just his second match. Chilton will face Ariana Hornberger next week to look for his first win, as the young players new to competition get their feet wet.
