#69 Kenilworth Championship - Round 4

Open Section

FM Steve Stoyko (4.0) kept his 1 point lead by defeating Tom Polese. Mark Kernighan (3.0) won a time scramble with fellow Master Scott Massey (1.5 from 3) to stay in 2nd. I beat Ziggy Bliznikas to move into a tie for 3rd (Scott has a game in hand) but sloppy play (missed wins on turns 25 & 29) should have cost me a half-point :

before 29...Qg6??

Black to play & win

U1800 Section

Greg Tomkovich, Ed Selling & Joe Demetrick (4.0) won to keep a share of the lead. Ted Mann (3.0), who co-led for the first three weeks, lost to Jevon O'Neal & dropped to 4th place. Justin Roach (2.5 from 3) remained undefeated & now stands 5th.

O'Neal (2.0 from 2) heads the U1500 trophy race. Bill Sokolosky (1.5 from 4), who upset Mike Wojcio last night, is next in contention.

Here's the updated round by round list of results (which I neglected to post for round 2 & 3) the Open Section crosstable, U1800 crosstable, my fortunate win (with annotations) in Java-replay & zipped PGN.

More games when they arrive.
