Gambito Open #532  9/17/11

This event has already been rated! As of Sunday morning...

20 players today in two sections. Here are the players in pre-event rating order:

Cyrus drew with Kyron and Bruce. Bruce also drew with Jamieson Pryor. Giovanni lost only to Bruce. Jamieson also beat Sussman and lost a squeaker to Kyron in the last round that could have gone either way according to both players. Thanks to Giovanni and Ivan for coming up from Mexico...Jerry Qu was willing to play in the Open, but we needed him in the Reserve to make it an even 6 players, because we were a bit light on the usual Class B and C players. It could be Jerry's last entry in the Reserves, but the Open Section can be cruel as Chuck and Jason Arbeiter can attest, so we will see...
