World Open 2006

Recently three West Orange members participated in the Annual World Open held in Philadelphia. Joseph Fortunato with a 5.0-9.0 result played in the Under 1400 section. Danny Palacios played in the U1600 with a final score of 4.0-9.0 and myself in the U2000 section with a 6.0-9.0.

The "trip" to Philadelphia ended up being a very stressful one! I was playing 5 hour games almost every round. We didn't really have much of an analysis time since we barely had time in between rounds eat something. At night,after the rounds were over, we hung around Philly in which Danny will forever remember the pleasant experience of meeting "Ashley". Overall, other than finding Danny a hard-person to keep quiet, Joe crushing out at 9:00pm and Mackenzie Molner going corrupted to his parents at home- It was fun!

Here are some of our games from the World Open:

1) Rosas - Soriano
