Kindred’s Special: Gata Kamsky and Ben Dean-Kawamura share top in Marchand Open

Once again the 2014 Marchand Open held over the weekend of March 8-9 exceeded 160 players.  The open section attracted five Grandmasters to participate in this annual 5-round FIDE-USCF tournament:  Gata Kamsky (4.5)  2778-2781, Alexsandr Lenderman (4-1) 2693-2696, Alexander Ivanov (4-1)  2590-2578,  Mark Paragua (4-1)  2657-2655, Mikheil Kekelidze (3-2) 2594-2580. (These ratings are not official but the statistics obtained from the Rochester Chess Center report.  Since the introduction of FIDE points, the attraction of GMs to our city and premiere event has drawn a growing number of chess stars to Rochester.

Grandmaster Gata Kamsky has been a major player in the world of chess.  He defeated in order, Jacob Chen (1945), Abraham Glasser (2138), Matt Parry (2283), GM Mikheil Kekelidze (2594), and drew with GM Aleksandr Lenderman (2693) to capture lst place on tie-break.

Surprise of the open was that by our local junior Ben Dean-Kawamura (4.5) equaling and catching GM Kamsky in the final round by defeating GM Kekelidze(3-2).  He won from Fred Harris (1.5), drew with Ken Frieden (3.5),won from Walter DeJong (2.5), David Petty (2.5), gathering his 4.5 total to share the $3300 prize with Kamsky, each earning $1650.

Third through fifth split $1400 ($340 each achieved by GM Lenderman, GM Paragua, GM Ivanov, locals Igor Nikolayev (2414) and Matt J. Parry (2283).

Under 2200 Prize Fund $800: lst $500 by Tae Kim (2101); $300 ($75 each) (3.5) Ken Frieden (2032), Stephen Dygert (2130), Anna Levina (2110), and Nick Panico III (2175).

Under 2000 Prize Fund $800: split $400: Daniel Johnston (1796)  and Lev Paciorkowski (1995)

Lower section cash prizes I was unable to gather for this report.

I took a couple snapshots and the only score sheet I got was in algebraic notation and unreadable.

The playing area was quiet and excellent for tournament play.  There were a couple rooms devoted to lower sections during play and analysis.  Blitz chess was commonly seen in free areas and on the floor in hallways.  The kids especially had a great time meeting new friends and sharing their chess skills.
