I feel bad about what happened. Therefore, I am proposing the following compromise:They can play each other in the 2nd round. This game can take place any time in thenext week or so at B&N or some other agreed upon place. I will be there. The winner of the game gets a half point. The loser gets 0 points. A draw is worth nothing. In either case, I am willing to pair Don and Ken in the 3rd round (but not necessarily to each other), if that is what they want.I hope this compromise will make people feel better about the situation and that Ken and Don will be in the tournament for Round 3.Bob Sherry
