September Gambito Opens: #437, #436, #435

Gambito #437  9/26/30 

Only 10 players, very unusual. Bruce Baker scored 4 points but declined to take any prize money, passing it on to BU2200: Kyron Griffith (2 1/2) and Leonard Sussman (2 1/2), $40 each; BU2000: Roberto Aiello (2 1/2), $60; BU1800: Fred Cleveland (2), $0     

Gambito #436   9/19/09

We are suffering low turnout this month due to several factors. The big Labor Day weekend event used up a lot of players time and money, but by next week this effect should be waning. Also this week we had to deal with a power outtage and loud construction noises as SDGE replaced a transformer right next to the club, 14 players braved the tough conditions and here are the prize winners (we used McMahon pairings with M/E=2, A=1, B/C=0). Oddly, there were no Class B players in this event.

First Place: Cyrus Lakdawala (6), $80    U2400: Bruce Baker (5), $40

U2200 Carey Milton (4), $40     2nd Place: Hin Tsang (3 1/2), $20

U2000: Mahdavan Vajapeyam (3 1/2), $40

U1800/1600: Tom Kuhn (2) and Alexander Blank (2), $20 each  

Total Prizes: $240
