The Kenilworth Summer Tournament standings got a little tighter last night as Ari Minkov & I played to a draw while NM Mark Kernighan & Greg Tomkovich notched full points.
Ari, who has led for all but 1 week, now has 9.0. Greg (who missed a share of 1st with a loss to Jim Cole), Mark & this reporter are a point back, at 8.0. We had the same configuration (Minkov clear first/3-way tie for 2nd) after round 6!
In the evening's only other game, Joe Demetrick's Caro-Kann dealt the Caveman Attack another setback.
Here's my lousy yet half-successful effort (with notes), + the Kernighan, Tomkovich & Cole wins in Java-replay & PGN.
I'll annotate & upload Jim's big upset before next Thursday & try to get Joe's victory for you, too.
BTW, 37 of 61 games (61%) have been collected from this event compared to last year's 33 of 86 (38%). Keep those scores coming!!
