Vassar April Action

Ernie Johnson and Darius Jafary tied for 1st in our April Action, both with a score of 3/4!  Ron Holland and Trevor Brooks tied for the u1900, with 2/4.  Ori got the u1500 by himself with 1.5/4.  All prizes for this tournament were Grand Prix pts.  Congrats to our winners.  The Poughkeepsie Spring Open starts Monday, and its our last GP tournament for the season.

Rudy Van Dommele won the 2018 Dutchess County Championship with a perfect 5/5!  Ayman Haoula finished clear 2nd with 4, while Ernie Johnson (A), Trevor Brooks (B), and Ron Holland (C) won their respective classes.  Trophies will be distributed on May 21.  Good chess to all our winners!
