Contra Costa Members do well at Berkeley Open

It was a good weekend for a few of our members that played in the Berkeley Open over the weekend. The tournament was held at the Berkeley Chess School a few blocks north of the US Berkeley campus. It was 4 rounds over Saturday and Sunday with about 70 players competing in 3 sections.

Scott M. went 4-0 to win the A-B player section and win $240. This pushed his rating over the 2000 mark! (see one of his games below)

Pete K. went 3-1 in the A-B section and tied with one other person for the top under 1800 prize. He won $147.50 and picked up 64 rating points!

Robert H. played in the Open section and scored 50%. It should be noted that he played at the Bay Area Chess Summer Open in Milpitas a few weeks back and took clear 2nd in that tournament!

Great job guys!

Here is one of Scott's games from the event:
