Bonin and Guevara Tie for 1st at January Open (January 2-23)

by on March 17, 2015

We drew 18 for this event, headed by IM Jay Bonin, 2014 club champion Payam Parhami and Rob Guevara with four more of the usual suspects between 2000 and 2100 (Bill Arluck, Ed Frumkin, Joe Felber and Ed Kopiecki). Felber was held to a first round draw by Guevara’s protégé Alex Roti (1581) but the upsets began in Round 2. Parhami lost to Kopiecki (reversing their club championship result) and Mulazim Muwwakkil (1878) beat Bill Arluck (2096). Bonin and Guevara defeated Kopiecki and Muwwakkil in Round 3 and drew in Round 4 to split the top prizes of $200 and $100 ($150 each). Parhami lost again in Round 3 to Jay Kleinman (1903). Guy Rawlins was top U1800 with 2½-1½ to win $60. Ed Frumkin and Joe Felber directed, although Joe missed Rounds 2 and 3 with car trouble.
