BCC January Monday Night Swiss

The first Monday Night Swiss of the new year ended this evening with FM Chris Chase winning with 4/4. He defeated Boston Globe chess columnist Harold Dondis, who still plays a tough game at age 86, while tinkering with the new (to the club) computer, a gift from Jason Rihel. He was trying to get it set up and show Bernardo Iglesias the new features in anticipation of a big turnout at this Saturday's quads.

Adam Yedidia was second with 3/4 - his only loss from having forgotten to come to the club last week. Adam you may recall started 2007 at around 550 and moved his rating up to nearly 1400. In this tournament, he defeated players rated 1810, 1244, and 1614 and so added some more points. He pulled out a striking win over Frank Frazier - while under time pressure in the end game he found a winning rook sac.
