Results of the 5th Annual Grand Pacific Open

April 22-25, 2011

 

 

Well, the dust has settled on the 5th annual Grand Pacific Open.   A record attendance was set (again!) at 104 players in the main event.   We drew players from Europe, across the US, and across Canada.   Something like 20+% of the players were out of province (and 80% not from Victoria).  The tournament attracted it's first GM and WGM (the eventual winner) as well as a selection of national (and world)  and provincial junior champions.

 

Side events at the GPO (free for participants in the main event) were again popular and included a scholastic event, active tournament, blitz, and  bughouse (or double chess).

 

As always, the event was held at the Hotel Grand Pacific,, a very nice hotel located in Victoria's Inner Harbour next to the BC legislature and across the street from US ferry connections.   All equipment was provided and $4250 in guaranteed prizes.  Stay tuned for announcements on next year's event - same place, same time (Easter) 2012, same venue.

 

A big thank you to those to made donations to support the tournament and to our Sponsors:

Bernard Callebaut chocolates

Orca Spirit Whale watching tours

IMAX Theatre

Hotel Grand Pacific

MonRoi

Downtown Victoria Business Association

Bard and Banker Scottish pub

Goddess Chess

 

The main event was convincingly won by WGM Nino Maisuradze with a 6-0 score with wins against most of the highest rated players.   Coming in with 5.5 points for second place was Vancouver junior Loren Brigham Laceste who despite his A class rating,, took out a number of masters and experts.   Not too sure what his new rating will be, but it seems likely he won't see an A class rating again.    Most of the favourites by rating and title wound up in the pack tied for 3rd well back at 4.5 points or (shudder) even lower.
