37th Keres Memorial Event Report

37th Annual Keres Memorial Event Report

 

May, 2012

 

The 37th annual Keres Memorial took place at the Executive Plaza Hotel in Richmond.   This year's edition drew 92 players which is an eight year high for the event.   It could have easily reached 100 but there were a rash of last minute cancelations.   With a bit more work, perhaps next year's event can compete for BC's largest tournament again. 

 

The field in the top section featured 3 IMs and 4 FMs including IM Dietmar Kolbus from Germany who happened to be visiting BC.  The locals held their own against him, defended their turf and perennial favourite Jack Yoos took 1st place over all.  This makes his 6th repeat win of this event.

 

We have reserved the same venue for next year's event May 18-20, 2013.  Be there!

 

Many thanks to those who helped out (Michael & Lara Lo, Ralph Lavallee, and others) as well as to Casey Collins who donated towards the upcoming Canadian Open.
