Simonaitis Storms to Victory in First G/29 Swiss

by on December 9, 2005

Arunas Simonaitis, with a Quick rating of 1983, battled his way to victory in the First Queens CC Game/29 Swiss.  The 4-SS, 10-player event was held the Club on 12/02/2005 and 12/09/2005.

Rooney won the $80 first prize with a score of 3.5 out of four, and Payam Parhami (1837Q) won the $40 second place prize, with 3 out of 4.  Rounding out the prize-winners, Andrew Ryba (1413Q) took the $40 Under 1700 prize, with a score of 2.5 out of 4.  Along the way, he defeated Mitch Drobbin (1784Q) and drew with Brian Lawson (1892Q).

This event was held in direct response to a vote taken at the last Queens CC Business/ Membership Meeting.  The majority of those present wanted to try one or two G/29 Quick events during late 2005 and/or 2006.  We expect that another such event will be held during the first half of 2006 (although clearly players weren’t “breaking our doors down” in order to participate!).

Queens CC President and Treasurer Joe Felber directed the “experimental event” at the Margaret Tietz Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Jamiaca.
