Feb 2012 Fundraiser Results

Feb. 12 2012 Active Fundraiser

 

Victoria Chess Club

 

On February 12th, eighteen players took part in an Active Chess tournament, primarily to enjoy a day of chess but also to raise money in support of the 2012 Grand Pacific Open.  The event was held at the Victoria Chess Club and raised $220 towards BC's largest chess tournament to be held at the Hotel Grand Pacific 6-9 April, 2012.

 

In addition to the entry fees, donations were received from Lynn Stringer, Nikolas Milonas, Alois Holzknecht and Duncan Haines.  Somewhat rare for chess tournaments, a 50/50 draw was held with half the proceeds going toward the Grand Pacific Open and half to the winner, Bill Tate.

 

Roger Patterson finished clear first, giving up only half a point to the highest rated player, Gavin Steininger.

Jason Cao finished second on tie break over Paul Leblanc.

 

Top Under 1700 was rapidly improving junior Mathew Geng followed by Jill Ding.

The Under 1400 prizes went to veteran Garth Edgar and newcomer Rowan James, age 6 and playing in his first adult tournament.
