[imagefield_assist|fid=3554|preset=frontpage_200x200|title=|desc=|link=none|origsize=|align=left|width=200|height=200]Five out of the 10 competitors of the 2010 Club Championship had a shot to win it all going into round five, and in the end, three emerged from the heap to claim the title of co-champion.
Jim Voelker topped Tony Rich early on in round five to finish the tournament with 3.5/5. Richard Benjamin needed a victory over Paul Mechem to claim the title outright, and Mechem had a shot to tie Voelker with a win. The hard-fought match between the two ended in a draw, securing a first-place tie between Benjamin and Voelker.
Ken Thomas had a shot of tying Voelker and Benjamin with a win against William Nesham. William, who continues to show steady improvement, proved to be tough competition for Thomas, but Thomas pulled out a victory in a game that went down to the final minutes.
In other action, Mike Kummer defeated Josh Frank in the final round and Dan Coryea fell to Paul Goddard.
