#379 Kernighan Wins Fish Memorial

NM Mark Kernighan (2221) won all 4 of his games and took 1st place at the Kenilworth CC’s Sy Fish Memorial. Ian Mangion (1832) was 2nd at 3.0. Eugene Shapiro (1535) & Ted Mann (1474), who both had 2.5, received the U1800 & U1500 prizes.

There were several upsets and scares in the event. Mann defeated Greg Tomkovich (1705). Daniel Zhu (1125) beat Lou Sturniolo (1443) & Pat Mazzillo (1392). Don Carrelli (1710) had a totally winning position vs. Kernighan and a tie for 1st at hand but badly blundered twice and lost a last-round heartbreaker. Shapiro & Sturniolo had clear plusses vs. the top 2 seeds/finishers before falling.

Here are 8 the 19 games played in Java-replay & zipped PGN. Hope the players who withheld scores are saving secrets for our upcoming matches against West Orange (Oct. 16th), Union County College (Oct. 30th) & Roselle (Nov. 6th) :-)
