Privman Wins March Madness

FM Boris Privman won yesterday's March Madness with 6.5/7. He clinched first place with a round to spare and finished 2 full points ahead of the field.

NM Mauricio Camejo and Expert Errol Singh tied for 2nd.

LM Vladimir Polyakin (U2200), Michael O'Connor (U1900) and Ramneek Singh (U1600) collected class prizes.

Here are some photos from the event, which featured 5 Masters and 14 participants, in all:

1562-rated Ramneek Singh (r) drew NM Arthur Macaspac (2224) in round 3.

7 year old, 1641-rated Merric Hu (playing Macaspac) finished at the bottom of the crosstable but drew NM Mauricio Camejo in the opening round.

In the 6th round, Michael O'Connor (1844) cooked LM Vladimir Polyakin (r) in a Caro-Kann.

Thanks to everyone who turned-out on the rainy Saturday and made the tournament a success. We hope to go mad again in a few months.
