Bonin and Felber Split the Money at September G/45

by on September 19, 2008

Eighteen players took part in this September 12-19 event. IM Jay Bonin (2370) and club president Joe Felber (2010) each won the first three games and drew fairly quickly in round 4 to divide the prizes of $120 and $60 to take home $90 each. Bill Arluck (1981), Mitch Drobbin (1947) and Al Casanova (1713) followed with 3-1 scores, which unfortunately failed to cash. 

Ruth Arluck (938) had the tournament of her life, puling off three consecutive upsets at the end, beating Henry Milerski (1400) and Iqbal Chaklader (provisional 1612) and drawing with Dave Randall (1536) to finish at 2½-1½, good for 1st U1650 prize of $55. Frank Drazil (1585) and Marcus Francis (1107) each scored 2-2 to divide the $30 2nd U1650 prize. Ruth’s hot streak also overtook Marcus’ lead in the October 2007-September 2008 upset contest with 2205 to Marcus’ 2069. Marcus got one last upset over Carrie Goldstein (1400) in the last round. Paul Drazil had a 776 point win over Henry Milerski in Round 7 of the 2007 Club Championship that held up all year as the biggest single upset. Ruth and Paul were awarded an additional $25 each. 

Ed Frumkin and Joe Felber directed.
