Gambito #374

June Super Gambito Open (Gambito #374)   06/07/08

26 players today, 16 in the Open, 10 in the Reserve Section. Turnout was a little light due to the National Open in Las Vegas, where many of our frequent players went to try their luck [Peter Graves, Elliott Liu, John Bryant, Ed Baluran, John Funderburg, Ignacio Sainz, Jesus Orozco, Fausto Robles, Jason Qu, Alfredo Deleon, Esteban Escobedo, William Wijaya, Hin Tsang, Michael Taylor, Robert Draper, Nestor Dagamat, Steve Perry, Gene Arnaiz, Arsenio Caccam, Aaron & Darren Chow].  Even so, we had 5 Masters once again (Lakdawala, Malla, Bruno, Baker, Ignacio), plus 5 Experts and 6 Class A players. Digesh Malla (rated 2406) had a rough time at his second Gambito Open: he drew with Roberto Aiello (1896), lost to Ryan Richardson (2085) and then withdrew. He says he can't seem to adjust to the faster time control in the Gambito Open. I sympathize, but hope he doesn't give up completely. It just takes a while to get used to. Cyrus drew with Ron Bruno, but Ron lost to Bruce in the last round. Arthur Macaspac made a surprise appearance and won 3 games, losing only to Cyrus in a game he probably should have drawn if he hadn't been so low on time. Arthur had a Rook supported by numerous pawns deep into Cy's territory, but with less than a minute on his clock, Arthur couldn't hold on to everything, and it all slipped away. How many times have we seen that happen? Cyrus' pieces just seem to be bigger... The game drew a large crowd of spectators and was quite exciting...    

Anthony Arciga is apparently still under-rated, this is his third win in a row of the U1600 prize. Pejman hasn't played for a while but hasn't lost his form. He came all the way down from Newport Beach to win $75. I wonder, does that barely cover his gasoline bill??
