The tournament title became a misnomer, as the anemic Jumbo Swiss ended with a whimper, the last (5th) round canceled due to only three players (who had already played each other) showing up last Monday. Sparsely attended, but yet games were played – and winners were crowned. Congrats to David Antonucci (3/4) and Naor Isak (2.5) for taking first and second respectively.
David, Naor, and Krishnan Ram also won chess books; look for more such giveaways this fall, as the TD looks to pare down his chess library.
Trophies will be presented after Labor Day, when the club returns to Vassar for the Fall session. The schedule will be updated shortly.
