BC Open Results

July 30- Aug.1, 2011

Richmond, BC




48 players came out for the 2011 version of the BC Open.  The stronger adult BC players were by and large MIA but the up and coming crop of juniors made up for it, taking most of the higher places in the crosstable.    BC Champion Jack Yoos did defend adult honor in convincingly taking first place in the 20 player top section with 5/6 though.  Tanraj Sohal and John Doknjas tied for 2nd-3rd with John taking the BC Closed qualification spot as Tanraj has already qualified.  The U1800 section was well represented with 28 players and was won by Jofrel Landingin with 5.5 points followed by relative newcomer Constantin Rotariu.


A trial policy for this tournament was to include a year's CFC membership in the entry fee for brand new players in the lower section.   5 players qualified for this making the number of new unrated players a bigger proportion than usual for BC tournaments.  It is likey that the organizers, Victoria Chess, will try this policy again in selected tournaments.

2nd-3rd & U2100: Tanraj Sohal, John Doknjas $175 each
