Pix from "Chess Mates" 8/1/2010

During Sunday's grand prix tournament at Chess Mates, I took these pictures.

This is the playing venue at 1531 Irving Street in Rahway.

Here are FIDE master Victor Shen, senior master Yaacov Norowitz, and international master Jay Bonin.

Candidate master Alex Eydelman relaxes before the first round.

On the other side of the door, FM Victor Shen defeats GM Leonid Yudasin.

Class A player Kevin Dresher manages to draw against FM Arthur Shen.

In the background, candidate master Rahul Swaminathan loses to FM Arthur Shen, while GM Michael Rohde is held to a draw by FM Gregory Markzon.

GM Leonid Yudasin and Kevin Dresher observe games that are in progress.
