CCSN May Open, May 15-17, 1998

(Directed by Ken Horne)

We had 13 players play in this tournament. There were three 2100 experts, three 2000 experts, one A, three Bs, three Cs for a tournament average of 1864.

We want to welcome Eric Langjahr. He is an expert who has been in Las Vegas for a while but has not played local chess.

This Tournament was held at the CCSN Torrey Pines campus. We had two rooms. One was the tournament hall and the other was the skittles room. Both rooms have excellent lighting and good climate control.

We had two upsets in round one. Ken Sims (1548) drew with a 2068 expert and John Trivett (1946) beat a 2140 expert.

In round two James Brailsford (1726) was our only upset master. He beat a 2068 expert.

The prize winners for this tournament were:

1st - Jorge Barrios [2120]     - 5.0
2nd - Tom Thrush [2161]        - 3.5

Under 1800:
1st - Chad Badgett [1641]      - 2.5
2nd - Mike Vannozzi [1505]     - 2.0
