#56 Kenilworth Championship - Round 1

The 17th 16th Kenilworth Championship got underway last night and, thanks to the Open Section make-up, there was a feisty marquis match-up right off the bat :

Steve Stoyko (2310) - Mark Kernighan (2200)
D10 Slav Defense

I’ll have a look at this game, “Fritz” it & perhaps review it with Mark before uploading comments to it.

In the only other Open contest, I drew against NM Scott Massey. In U1800 action, Greg Tomkovich, Joe Demetrick, Ted Mann, Mike Wojcio & Ed Selling won while Joe Renna & Bill Sokolosky split a point.

I've annotated my game &amp put it in Java-replay + PGN along with the Stoyko and Selling games. 1st round pairings & crosstables.
