Zilbermintz and Kopiecki Tie for 1st at Winter G45 (January 30-February 6)

by on March 17, 2015

Thanks to our terrible winter weather, only 12 hardy souls turned up for our two week event. There were no surprises in Round 1, but in Round 2 there were two strange draws. On Board 1 Rob Guevara (2131) was winning easily against Joe Felber (2010) but was in his usual time trouble when he started dropping pawns with check, but Joe let him off with a draw when Rob was down to a couple of seconds (too nice a guy!!) Eddie Kopiecki (2004) was up a Queen on Lev Zilbermintz (2060) on Board 2 when the former ran out of time (get a delay clock!!). Ed Frumkin (2028) beat Jay Kleinman (1903) to be the only perfect score going into week 2. Ed beat Rob on time to reach 3-0 while Lev beat Joe and Eddie beat Ken Cruz (1741), the top 1-1 when Kleinman couldn’t play week 2. Zilbermintz than beat Frumkin while Kopiecki beat top 2-1 Clayton Glad (1718). Lev and Eddie split the top prizes of $90 and $60 ($75 each), while Ken Cruz, Clay Glad and Guy Rawlins (1606) split the $50 U1800 prize with 2-2 scores ($17 each). Ed Frumkin and Joe Felber directed.
