Joel Johnson remembers the days when he was playing in the first World Open and playing Carol Jarecki's son. He told International Arbiter Carol, who was the tournament director at the U.S. Senior how her son could not settle down or fidgeted at the board and when undefeated at the tournament. This is Joel's first US Senior and was happy to win the tournament with a possible birth in the US Closed next year. He said the tournament was great and in a nice relaxed atmosphere. He is looking forward to playing in future US Seniors.

Here is one of Joel's five victories from the event:
