BCF runs its own marathon on Patriots’ Day weekend. Today we had 24 players join us and squeeze tightly and madly into three strained Sections. Happily all worked out well as the U1500 Section finished remarkably quickly and the U2000 finished with a tough shootout for 1st Place, landing ultimately in the lap of Ben Marlin.
On top Ridvan Sakir, our visitor from Turkey, and Joaquin Carlson faced a small but intense group and walked off with 1st Place (4-0 score) and 2nd Place (2.5 score).
1st: Ridvan Sakir
2nd: Joaquin Carlson
1st: Ben Marlin
1st (tied): Steven Feng, Jacob Wu
Great job, everybody! We’ll see the group over the board next Saturday at the Legends of Chess Taimanov.
