Gambito #620

Gambito Open  #620  on 8/10/12 

Six Gambito Opens in a row with 30+ players, this one had 31, I wasn't expecting this as there usually is a drop off after the big County Championships last week (64 players). We had a few new players too which is always nice. I (Chuck Ensey) wasn't able to play, but I stopped by during the lunch break to collect some entry fees for next week's Super Double Gambito and also for the Southern California Open coming up on August 31st. Sign up online or mail a check in soon to get the advance rate of $100 ($50 for the Super Double), or pay in person Wednesday night. Soon the SCO rate goes up to $120 and then to $140.

Here they are today's players in pre-event rating order, Bruce Baker directed using a 4 point McMahon pairing system:
