The first Twin Ports Open was a huge success with over 85 participants! In the Open section, GM Alex Yermolinsky and IM John Bartholomew tied for first with 4.5/5. Matt Jensen from Rochester scored 3 points in a tie for 12th place. Dennis Mays had a strong performance with 2.5 points, scoring 50% in his three games against experts!
In the Reserve section Ben Isbell won first place with a perfect score of 5/5. Rochester players Maor Leker Locker and Paul Kinion had 3 and 2 points, respectively.
It was a fun event and I hope it becomes an annual tradition. USCF Crosstable for the event.
Tonight we have an unrated theme tournament at the club. The cost is $5 for members and $10 for non-members.
There is no book drawing for tonight, but going forward we are going to have more books to giveaway. We plan to enter everyone who attends the club meeting in the drawing next time.
