#856 Summer Tourney - Round 2

11 players joined, swelling the field to a record 29. There were 14 or 15 games played but, unfortunately, several pairings and 1 result were not available at posting time. I will try to get the missing info for you in the days to come.

Open Section

Joe Renna defeated Chris Constantino to take an apparent a half-point lead over expert Ian Mangion and NM Mark Kernighan. The latter was nicked for a draw by young Praveen Balakrishnan.

In other games, Mike Goeller upset FM Steve Stoyko, Kevin Chen won vs. Greg Tomkovich and I struggled to beat Bert Shiffman. Pat Mazzillo also took a full point.

M. Sherer 0-1 Mangion
Tomkovich 0-1 Chen
Mazzillo 1-0 Burnett
Constantino 0-1 Renna


1. Renna 2.0
=2-3. Kernighan, Mangion 1.5
=4-8. Goeller, Chen, Moldovan, Tomkovich, Mazzillo 1.0

= 2-3. Antonia Altamirano, L. Sefia 1.0
4. Senyatkin 0.5

I'm going to hold-off posting the standings and wall-chart for now crosstables until after round 3.
