Lenderman Wins "Ten Grand Prix Points Tonight"

IM Alex Lenderman swept the February 12th edition of the Chess Center of New York's "Four Rated Games Tonight", defeating GMs Giorgi Kacheishvili and Maurice Ashley along the road to victory. A first prize of $200 awaited Lenderman at the end of that road.

FM Ilye Figler was a half-point behind Lenderman in sole second place, picking up $110. Kacheishvili and Maurice Ashley ended the night tied for third with 3-1 (worth $22 each), along with NM Yevgeni Margulis and Bora Yagiz, whose 3 points were worth $88 each for the under-2200 prize.
