Cindy Stowell was the 4x returning champ on Monday with 4 games. She won 2 more matches and lost to Sam Scovill on Wednesday. By Friday, Sam was a 3x champ and he will be back on Monday.

Cindy accumulated over $100,000 to donate to cancer research during her amazing run, and she inspired many others to donate to cancer research. As many of us celebrate the holidays, her untimely passing on December 5th is a humbling reminder that many families are facing their first holiday season after losing a loved one. Our sincerest condolences go out to all of them.
