More Weekend Action at the Marshall

Three other events were held at the Club last weekend. GM Fabiano Caruana, the 16-year old champion of Italy paid us a flying visit and won the Sunday night "Sliding Scale Quad" with a 3-0 score. IM Jay Bonin and Gabor Schnitzler tied for second with 2 points in what was actually a 6-player Swiss. (Crosstable is available on the USCF website.)

On Saturday night, Raven Sturt won the "Prove Your Point" action event with 3-0. Lief Pressman finished a half-point behind. Also on Saturday, Justus Williams swept the New York September Under-1600 (4-0). Joel Sneed had sole possession of second a hlf-point back; and Lenn Uchima, Brandon Borden, and Harrison Termotto tied for third with 3-1. The Under-1300 prize was shared by Max Eberstadt-Beattie, Derek Kleinbaum, Alexander Crump, Reva Singh, and Jacqueline Kuo, all with 2 points.
