October Monthly Winner

Written by Debbyoc
Congratulations to jflawzle3 for winning the October Monthly tournament. Here is his bio:
Hi Everyone,
I’m Jacob, I live in Denver with my girlfriend, Theresa, and our 10-month old chocolate lab, Leila, but am originally from Iowa. I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Colorado-Boulder. I study European history and focus on the Holocaust and World War II – reading, writing, and teaching history are my passions in life. I am also an avid runner – just qualified for my first Boston Marathon, which I will be running next April. I started playing this tournament over three years ago and have not missed a monthly since (and have made most dailies as well!). I’ve always taken a lot of pride in the monthly matches and hoped that someday I would have a shot at a final. Just last month I made my first semifinal and this month I was able to have an incredible string of luck to beat a very good player in ephemeron, (not to mention the amazing opponents along the way). I’ve met a bunch of amazing people on this site over the years and win or lose have always enjoyed the games and conversations. I owe a debt of gratitude to JBeckham, he has taken me under his wing as a type of “Words With Friends mentor” and is a true class act. This monthly championship is as much his as it is mine! I want to also thank Debby for constantly running this site and providing a place for all the wordies to have some friendly competition.  Hope to meet you all at some point in the monthly or the dailies!
