Event Report 2015 BC Open

Page history last edited by roger patterson 5 years, 8 months ago

2015 BC Open

Feb. 7-9

Richmond, BC

 

 

The 47th BC Open drew 85 players to Richmond BC - a 30 year high in attendance and building on the recent strong attendances for the last few years.   Just a few more players next time and it will be a 42 year high!   It seems clear that the BC Open has been reestablished as one of the major events of the BC chess calendar.  Our favourite story is that of Scott Richardson who along with Kai Richardson had to snowshoe out of the snow in the BC Interior to make it to a truck and then to a plane to make it to the tournament.   Dedication!

 

This year's event was the first in recent years to run in three sections instead of two - a decision prompted by the strong attendance of the last few years.   That worked out well - the numbers in each section were reasonably balanced and due to the somewhat condensed rating range for each section, the competition was a stiffer than previously.   Finishing in the prize money required half a point less than last year.   Last year's winner Tanraj Sohal was again the favorite and wound up again in the winner's circle but he sputtered out of the starting gate dropping a half point to Roger Patterson in round 2 and another half point in what must have been a lost game against James Chan in round 3.

 

A pgn file can be found on Stephen Wright's site as well as links to more photos, BC Open history, and the crosstable below.

 

Thanks to all those who helped out and to our TD, FA Stephen Wright.
