Gambito Open #596

Gambito Open #596 on 1/19/13

30 players, good turnout, here they are in pre-event rating order:
4 Masters: Dionisio Aldama, Cyrus Lakdawala, Kyron Griffith and Bruce Baker
8 Experts: Venkat Iyer, Aaron Wooten, Peter Hodges, Leonard Sussman, Chris Wonnell, Bud Stamper, Jeff Turner and Elkaei Rivera
6 Class A: Buddy Morris, Aaron Householder, Sridhar Ramanujam, Pejman Sagart, Ajay Krishnan and Jerry Qu
8 Class B: Gregory Ingolia, Sam Barboo, Chuck Ensey, Fawsi Murra, Gurveer Singh, Scott Householder, Ben Keltner and Anthony Harbone. Also: John Donahoo, 2 house games.
1 Class C: Keric Rivas
3 Class D/E: Joshua Chung, Patrick Edwards and Jim Harrell

We used a 4 point McMahon pairing system, where M=4, Exp=3, A=2, B=1, C/D=0
Chuck Ensey directed and wrote this post. Cyrus had it won after 3 rounds by defeating Kyron, Bruce and Venkat while Dionisio lost to both Kyron and Bruce. Cy drew with Dionisio in the last round but by then he already had a 1 1/2 point lead. Great day for Expert Jeff Turner, he drew with Peter Hodges, beat Chris Wonnell, drew with Bud Stamper and beat Venkat. Ajay continues to move up the rating charts and Greg Ingolia busted through to become an A player. He had an old scholastic rating that took some time to bring up. There should be a way for the rating system to take that into account, but as far as I know, they don't. Keric Rivas also had a good day with 2 wins, a draw and a loss only to Scott Householder. Joshua won the U1400 even though he had to leave early.

Here were the prize winners:
First Place: Cyrus Lakdawala (7 1/2), $100
Second Place: Kyron Griffith (6 1/2), $75
BU2400: Bruce Baker (6 1/2), $75
BU2200: Jeff Turner (6), $75
BU2000: Ajay Krishnan (4 1/2), $75
BU1800: Gregory Ingolia (4), $75
BU1600: Keric Rivas (2 1/2), $40
BU1400: Joshua Chung (1 1/2), $25

Total Prizes: $540
