Kacheishvili Wins "Four Rated Games Tonight"!

Surprisingly enough, GM Giorgi Kacheishvili won the Chess Center of New York's "Original Four Rated Games Tonight" on Thursday, December 11. He scored 3 1/2 points and earned $80.

Three players tied for second with 3-1: IM Jay Bonin and Yefim Treger split $40 each, while Natanael Moraes (rated 1970 on the wall chart) picked up $50 for the best score under 2200.

Moshe Uminer, Bora Yagiz, and Gabor Schnitzler split the Under-2000 prize, scoring 2-2 and taking home $15 each.

The complete results are available from the USCF website. Andre Harding directed a field of 17 players; no zombie re-entrants this week.

Holiday Spirit watch: only four draws in the tournament--one each round. Not bad!
