Chess Boxing Tournament

Sunday, Nov. 15th
Seneca Lake Open results
The tournament was held in Geneva on Saturday, Nov. 14th. The Chess Center van took a large group to participate in the tournament. There was $1000 in guaranteed prizes. The cross table photo is a little bit blurry, but hopefully it is still good enough to see the game scores and prizes. The tournament organizer was Jonathan Porschet and the tournament director was Ron Lohrman. Several of the most active top players in Western NY participated. This included our own group of local Rochester players Lev Paciorkowski, Matt Slomski, Abraham Glasser, Daniel Johnston, David Phelps, Jamshed Ahmed, David Campbell, Owen Shriver, and Thomas Kwon to name just a few. After 4 rounds of play, there were no perfect scores in the Open section. It is great to see our local players participating in these tournaments. See the results below.
