Friday Night Action


This week’s action tournament was a six player swiss lead by NM Ian Harris. Also registered were regulars Alex Eydelman, Matthew Chan and Melvin Patrick. They were joined by Fairfield University’s Brian Arpie and newcomer Sam Aldershof. Matthew Chan continued his pattern of bouncing between 1690 – 1710. Meanwhile both Harris and Arpie started off 2 for 2 setting up an important last round showdown. Arpie blitzed out a familiar opening, however Harris steered the game into unfamiliar territory and eventually achieved an unstoppable attack on the enemy king! Congratulations to Harris for taking first place as well as Eydelman, Arpie and Chan for tying for second!
