Dan Feyer

The reigning champion

Congratulations yet again to Dan Feyer who won the 2015 American Crossword Puzzle Tournament, beating Tyler Hinman by less than one second!

It could not have been more dramatic. Mr. Himman had won five in a row until Mr. Feyer started his streak which now totals six consecutive victories.

Congratulations as well to the other "big board" winners: Andrew Feist won the B division & David Steinberg won the C.
