GM Alexander Fishbein wins Marchand 2018 with 4.5 points

Grandmaster Alexander Fishbein and Master Lev Paciorkowski  play on board #1 in the Open.

The biggest chess event in the Western NY area was even bigger this year, with more than 150 players, and an Open Section that was bursting with players.  It was a full-house at the Strong Museum with players and spectators enjoying some of the greatest chess games to see all year in Rochester, NY.

At high-stakes tournaments like this, chess players in all sections play extra hard and it is not only the prizes on the line, but also the prestige. And, this was a special year, the 40th Marchand.

Dan Burnside compiled a very nice set of photographs which can be viewed individually, or as part of a picture movie.  Here are the links:
