Mendez shares 2nd at Foxwoods U1600!

Congratulations to Vassar-Chadwick member Michael Mendez, for his impressive tournament performance at the recently completed Foxwoods Open. After seven rounds (a grueling schedule for sure), he finished with 5 points, tied with 3 other people. His last round game was against one of the other leaders, which I’ll assume was a hard-fought draw to secure a share of 2nd. For his efforts Mendez took home $575 – it would have been even more, but a smaller than expected turnout forced the organizers to cut the prize fund in half. According to the USCF report, the tournament (which had not run in 5 years) may not come back to Foxwoods any time soon if they cannot secure the Easter holiday weekend.

While preparing this post I noticed another name familiar to our club – Ron Holland also played in the U1600 section, and also did very well, sharing 6th place and taking home almost $200. I didn’t find any other members, so if you see someone I missed, post it in the comments.

As of this writing there’s an issue with the USCF crosstable page, so I cannot show the full results, with rating updates and such.
