CCL Coach and IM Goran Vojinovic seldom fails to impress as he has won almost every major Ohio tournament that he has played in. This time he tied for 1st with GM Bryan Smith. Following close behind with 4.0 were CCL players Walker Griggs, John Hughes, and Maggie Feng. They got $300 each for being part of a 5 way tie for 3rd place. A shout goes out to Blake Baumgartner for a nice draw against GM Sergey Kudrin.
Jason Lai ran away with the money, with a perfect score, in the Premier Section (U-1800). He was reward with $600 for his efforts. Also taking home some of the money in that section was: Kian Souayvixay and Sujan Rachuri for tying for 2nd place, Joshua George for tying for 1st in the U-1600 class prize, and David Carroll for bring home the upset prize.
Another very fine showing by CCL at a major Ohio Open.
