Pix from New York May Open

During the New York May Open, this past weekend, I took these pictures at the Marshall Chess Club.

International master Jay Bonin arrives on Saturday morning.

Tournament director Steve Immitt takes entry fees.

My first round opponent Frank Paciulli prepares for our game. Although it ended in a draw, both players missed wins.

IM Justin Sarkar arranges his pieces.

IM Jay Bonin and NM Iryna Zenyuk analyze their second round game which was drawn.

Ed Kopiecki, wearing the green shirt, plays Lilia Poteat in round two. Kopiecki won the Under 2000 section with a perfect score of 4 points.

Here is more play from round two, in the one day schedule.

Two international masters, Jay Bonin and Alex Lenderman, relax before their final round game. Bonin won it, enabling him to tie for first place with GM Leonid Yudasin and IM Oliver Barbosa at 3.5 points.
