#617 Kenilworth Championship - Round 2

TD Geoff McAuliffe & unrated junior Braden Reinoso late-joined. The latter will, however, just be a fill.

2nd round synopsis, pairings & results:
  • Two of the top 4 seeds were upset, as Mark Kernighan lost a big lead vs. Richard Lewis & Mark Schwarcz fell to Glen Hart.
  • Ian Mangion got a big gift as I tricked myself into a loss, from an equal position.
  • Joe Renna came from way behind to beat Dan Komunicky & Ted Mann did the same versus Jim Cole.
  • Newcomer Reinoso played well against Lou Stuniolo for 27 moves but then went down quickly.
  • Don Carrelli, Arthur Macaspac & Mike Wojcio also won.
