Treger, Aregbeyen, Molina Win Wednesday Under-2000

Anatoly Treger and Aigboje Aregbeyen made a peaceful last-round draw and were joined at the top of the Marshall's Wednesday Night Under-2000 Swiss by Turpana Molina, who scored a 782 point upset victory. Molina came into the tournament with a rating of just 923--that's not a typo--but won four games against players more than 700 points higher rated, losing only to Aregbeyen in round 4.
