Gambito Open #599 on 2/9/13

Gambito Open #599 on 2/9/13

25 players,  here they are in pre-event rating order:

4 Masters: ,IM Cyrus Lakdawala, Kyron Griffith, Bruce Baker, Peter Graves
6 Experts: Paul Agron, Raoul Crisologo, Venkat Iyer, Aaron Wooten, Lenny Sussman, Bud Stamper
1 Class A: Marco Gonzales
7 Class B:  Gurveer Singh, Chuck Ensey, Daniel Cook, Alex Costello, John Donahoo (House), Daniel Cook, Anthony Harbone, Michelangelo Barozzi
4 Class C: Ben Keltner, Christopher Martin, Ben Duong, Fred Cleveland
3 Class D/E: Joshua Chung, Andrew Sung, Sabrina Duong

Jeff Turner directed and wrote this post. We used a 3 point McMahon pairing system, where M=3, Exp & A=2, B=1, C/D=0

Of note was the return of Master Peter Graves in an impressive performance defeating Venkat,  drawing both Cyrus and Kyron, then losing only to Bruce.

Again, it’s great seeing kids playing well enough to win prizes in this tough event (Barozzi, Costello and Keltner comprise 33% of the prize winners).

Here were the prize winners:
First Place: Kyron Griffith  (6), 
Second Place: IM Cyrus Lakdawala (5 1/2), 
BU2400: Peter Graves, Bruce Baker (5), 
$30 each
BU2200: Lenny Sussman (5), 
BU2000/BU1800: Daniel Cook, Michelangelo Barozzi, Alex Costello (4), 
$33 each
BU1600: Ben Keltner (3), 

Total Prizes: $409
