44th Annual Keres Memorial

Richmond BC, May 2019

 

 

The 44th annual Keres Memorial drew 185 player blowing by last year's record turnout which was itself a 30 year record.   This year's turnout is surpassed only by the original event (the original Vancouver 1975) and the 1st annual Keres Memorial.  As neither of those two events were weekend events,   this is a tie with this year's BC Open for the largest adult weekend tournament ever in BC.   On the other hand, both these record setting events were this year so maybe this is just the new normal :-)

 

Not withstanding the record attendance, the Premier section was smaller than usual and possibly a bit weaker than usual.   Part of the problem was that the annual Chess & Math Chess Challenge was in town causing a dozen local juniors to opt for that event as well as taking FM Tanraj Sohal as a coach/team leader for the BC team.  Other reason's for the smaller Premier section?  hard to say but necessary to ponder for next year.

 

In the end,  perennial favourite IM Georgi Orlov of Seattle and newly local IM Raymond Kaufman shared first place with 5.5/6.    They briefly ceded the sole lead to junior Patrick Huang in round 4 after drawing each other then tag teamed Patrick enroute to the final score and first place.  Patrick's performance confirmed the evidence of his strength after the breakout result he had at last month's Grand Pacific Open and he joins the ranks of BC's masters.

 

Round 3 pairing for the eventual winners:    IM Georgi Orlov vs IM Raymond Kaufman

 

 

 

Also in round 3, simultaneous action by the 3rd place finishers Davaa-Ochir Nyamdorj and Patrick Huang.

 

 

The full final standings for all sections is given at the end of this report along with prizes won.
