Rubenchik Wins Machan Open VIII

FM Rodion Rubenchik won yesterday's Dr. Luvizminda Machan Open, with 3.5/4.

LM James West, Ted Belanoff, Mauricio Camejo and Aravind Kumar tied for 2nd. With his result, Belanoff raised his rating to 2200 and became a National Master but a re-rate left him 1 point short of NM level.

Anthony Norris was the U2000 prize-winner and Brandon Ng was the top U1400.

John Moldovan's opening round draw with West was the biggest upset.
