Bernard Parun, Man of Action
Bernard Parun won the 2009 Louisiana Blitz Championship in dramatic style with 9.0/10.0 points, finishing 0.5 points ahead of Rene Phillips. Parun demonstrated that his patience, healthy aggression, cunning opening play, masterful technique, and keen eye for mistakes are why he should be the most feared blitz player in the State for at least a year.
The tournament was held during the Louisiana State Championship on Sunday, September 6, 2009, at the Drury Inn of Baton Rouge. 21 players competed for the title, but there could be only One: the man with the heart of a champion, Bernard Parun.
