#509 Kortchnois Stay Perfect, Karpovs Fall

In Garden State Chess League action last night, the 1st place Kenilworth Kortchnois defeated Summit 3-1 but the Kenilworth Karpovs fell to Hamilton 2.5-1.5.

The 4-0 Kortchnois, playing without NM Yaacov Norowitz & Ari Minkov, got victories from top board Mark Kernighan, David Pawlowski & Greg Tomkovich to put themselves a full game ahead of 2nd place West Orange. They can clinch the GSCL title with a draw against 0-4 Sparta on June 30th.

The Karpovs, meanwhile, got a draw from FM Steve Stoyko & a convincing win by Ian Mangion but lost the bottom pairings. They will wrap-up a disappointing season vs. Summit.

Here are eight games from round 4 (including a revised version of my loss to Fernandez) in PGN format. Replays will follow.
