It was a very, very tough day of judging here at the compound, as Garrett Sparks, Sye Hickey and Greg Turner all turned out fantastic posts on memorable games. Ultimately, however, the unfortunate task of cutting someone falls on my shoulders, and though I hate being the hatchet man, it must be done. Therefore, it’s with a heavy heart that we let the great Sye Hickey go today. The group was solid, Sye, and in the end I think you were just out-concepted. Keep your head up, though — there’s no shame in being the one cut from this flight. All three of you were aces, and your post was very, very strong. But it has to be done, and I hope you won’t hold it against me. So farewell Sye — and may a flight of angels sing thee to thy rest.
