Izoria, Rohde, Bonin Win 10 Grand Prix Points Tonight

Grandmasters Zviad Izoria and Michael Rohde, and IM Jay Bonin, shared first prize in the Chess Center of New York's Ten Grand Prix Points Tonight action tournament on Thursday night, August 28. The trio won $120 (and, let me see, three and a third Grand Prix points) apiece. They scored 3 1/2 points.

Kassa Korley and NM Yevgeni Margulis won $53 each as the top scorers rated under 2200, with three points. Scot McElheny also scored three points, and won $95 as the top player under 2000. 33 players competed.

The crosstable is available from the USCF website.
