Event Report Jack Taylor 2017

32nd Annual Jack Taylor Memorial Chess Tournament

Nov. 17-19, 2017

Event Report

 

68 players turned out for the 32 annual Jack Taylor Memorial with representatives from Germany, Roumania, US, as well as the usual crowd from BC.  This is a record turnout for us, so much so that we had to rent an extra room at the last minute to accommodate the overflow.   It seems we have outgrown the Royal Scott Hotel as a venue and have a new venue booked for next year.   Next year's event will be in late October so that we avoid competition with office Christmas parties for room space (which was a problem this year).

 

The top players were not seriously threatened for the top places by the rest of the field apart from an early draw given up by Gansvind and the winner determined by games between themselves.   Jason Kenney emerged on top thanks to wins against Harry Moore in round 4 and an endgame massage in round 5 against Sergui Paramanov from Roumania.

 

As has been the case for the last few years, this event was generously sponsored by the Jack Taylor family,   Many thanks!
