#669 Ellner Memorial - Round 1

Mark Kernighan (2245), David Pawlowski (1786), Greg Tomkovich (1681), Mike Wojcio (1600) & Ted Mann (1485) lead the 3rd Irving Ellner Memorial Swiss after 1 round of play.

Ted's win came in a double Rook ending against 2193-rated Ken Chieu, who recently defeated IM Dean Ippolito & drew a GM. The 708-point upset may well be the biggest in Kenilworth CC history!

However, Greg's victory versus Pat Mazzillo, which featured a spectacular Bishop sac on f7, was far more impressive:
