Arthur Shen Wins G/45

FM Arthur Shen won the Sunday G/45 with a 4.0/5 score. IM Ilye Figler and Expert Rahul Swaminathan tied for 2nd & 3rd. Eve Zhurbinskiy and Serge Adelson shared the U2200 and U2000 prizes.

The event was small (just 9 players) but certainly wasn't lacking in quality. In fact it was so strong (2204.22 average!!!) IM Justin Sarker managed just an even score while FM Victor Shen (Arthur's older brother & NJ Knockouts teammate), who won the U2400 section at last month's World Open, received a full point bye in round 4!
