I would encourage pre-entries for all players if this is possible, as it saves us time on chess day morning and also saves you dollars. Thanks.

Sixty-seven participants. Thirty-eight in the Open, including 2 Females. Twenty-nine in the Reserve, including eight Females (or over 27.5% of the section). Thank you to Goddesschess for it's sponsorship of all the additional prizes.

Going into the final round, both sections feature the only two undefeated players, meeting on board 1. In the Open it is Awonder Liang versus Derek Paitrick and in the Reserve it is Gary Wright versus Russ Holmes.

And the winners are?

Awonder won to finish first with 4-0. Alexander Velikanov finished clear second at 3.5-0.5 with a final round win. In the Reserve Gary and Russ drew with each other and Micah Chrisman and Aradh Kaur won their final round games to finish in a four way tie for first place with 3.5-0.5 scores.
