Tournament Results
Tampa Bay Thanksgiving Open, Saturday, November 19, 2011

Presented by Tampa Chess Centre and Yes2Chess.com

The Thanksgiving Open chess tournament, held on Saturday, November 19 at the new Tampa Chess Centre, marked a new era for chess in Tampa. Last year, few chose to play during the holiday weekend. This year was a refreshing change. Luther Barnum, Vinod Panicker, and Brian Alvarado all chose this event to return to the game they have loved for years. The event was a very competitive yet extremely friendly one. No one was able to slow down the winner, NM Corey Acor, as per his usual modes operandi at time controls under one hour. The race for second place ended with a four way tie between Mike Hoffer, Scott Raymond, Luther Barnum, and Josh Kennedy, while Andres Hernandez, Terry Feeney, and Kevin Steven put up a valiant effort. The final result came down to a wild game between Hoffer & Raymond. With six seconds remaining on his clock, Coach Mike botched an easy win in severe zeitnot where opposite colored Bishops ensured the four-way tie. Kennedy, who faithfully attends our events despite the long drive from Fort Myers, continued his fine results against the adults. Many thanks to Sherry Gunsett for photographing the event, Mike Serovey for directing, and TrongAn & Ginger Hoang for their tireless efforts to provide a pleasant venue for all. Everyone had such a great time; we look forward to greatly improved attendance at our events, the next on New Year's Eve with the first round starting @ 12:45 PM.
