2nd Jane Addams Memorial - results!

Grandmaster Dmitry Gurevich of Chicago won the 2nd Jane Addams Memorial, held at the University of Illinois Chicago on January 18-20, with an undefeated score of 4½-½. IM Erik Santarius of Brookfield, Wisconsin, was also undefeated, and took clear second with 4-1. Wisconsin master Zane Eisen and future Wisconsin master Susannah Ulrich shared both third place and the top Under 2300 honors.


Alan Wei of Naperville won the Under 2100 section with the Swiss Gambit, losing to second-place finisher Amarjargal Ganbaatar in round 1, then sweeping his final four games.


Manmit Pantle of Naperville, with a FIDE rating of only 1720, won the Under 1900 section comfortably with four wins and a last-round draw to clinch.


Kevin Oliver and Chicago Chess Center board member Jingwei Lou, both of Chicago, shared top honors in the Under 1700 section with 4-1 scores.


Andrew Granato of Chicago had the only perfect score of the weekend: his 6-0 in the Under 1500 section lapped the field by two full points.


Louisa Zhang of Lisle split her second-round game with Aaron Deets and won her other games to finish ½-point ahead of Deets in the Under 1300 section.


Benjamin Buchwald of Lincolnshire and Matthew Sweet of Chicago shared top honors in the U1000 section with 4-2 scores.

Friday night’s storm created a logistical challenge, as seventeen players withdrew, many of them (understandably) at the last minute. The snow accumulation in the city was never that bad. But driving was treacherous both Friday night and Saturday morning, and many suburbs got hit hard. Thanks to National Tournament Directors Glenn Panner and Betsy Zacate, we were able to start Round 1 with minimal delay. Special thanks to them for running a smooth event under difficult conditions, and to the 87 players who braved the snow and the cold!


We paid out $6,513.34 in prizes. A full list of prizewinners follows.

I will post games from the tournament later this week. Here’s a funny appetizer that demonstrates how strong some of our young players are. Jind Kaur (956) almost upset yours truly, Bill Brock (2052), in a side game. Jind was conducting the attack automatically, and I was going deep in the tank trying to defend.

When a horrified Betsy Zacate asked me whether I was ever lost, I said I was never clearly busted. Stockfish seems to disagree:

Potowotami Open & Fort Dearborn Reserve

The first Potowotami Open & Fort Dearborn Reserve was held July 7-8 at UIC Student Center East. Sixty-six players competed for a guaranteed prize fund of $5,500.

 

GM Priyadharshan Kannappan won $1,000 for clear first in the Potowotami Open: Priyadharshan has finished his master's program at Webster University and has accepted a job offer back home in India: we'll miss him! International Master Zhaozhi Li took clear second: George earned $700. There was a massive tie for third: GM Dmitry Gurevich, NM Steven Cooklev, Dimitar Mardov, Ben Rothschild, and Anupama Rajendra (who won $242 each) as well as Under 2000 winners Shreyas Reddy and Hiro Higuchi (who won $245 each) all scored 3.5 points. Nine-year-old Dimitar lost only to George Li & won all his other games!

 

In the Fort Dearborn Reserve, Leon Lang Cao, John De Mastri, William Cahill, and top Under 1600 Conor Patrick Dorn all tied for first with undefeated 4-1 scores, winning $377.50 each. Alex Zhang won $105 for second U1600, and Kevin Cahill and Orin Harris won $150 each for best scores among Under 1400 place. Jim Davis, Charles Pieper, Joshua Darnall, Max Yang, and Chris Hinkle won $57 each for best Under 1200 scores.

 

Thanks to NTD Maret Thorpe, assisted by Kirti Sanchana. The nice but slightly incompetent organizer, Bill Brock (hi folks!), learned about Student Center East's summer closing time of 10 p.m. the night before the event. He forgot to tell Maret, who was rather surprised when security came to ask the players to leave at 10:15. She had to learn how to adjourn the three unfinished games under both US Chess and FIDE rules. Thanks to the patient and understanding players, it all worked out in the end. And special thanks to Kirti Sanchana, who drove from Cincinnati to Chicago to assist Maret. He drove back to Cincinnati last night to be with his pregnant wife, then is driving to work in Atlanta tonight. Road warrior!
