In Blaine at the 2011 Washington State High School Chess Team Championships, Lakeside and Interlake tied for the title after five rounds. Overtime, to determine the State Championship, was a five-on-five speed chess playoff, each player having three minutes on the clock (with a two second delay). The photo above taken right at the start of the playoff. (Photo courtesy of Barry Hanson.) (More Chess State photos.)
