AY Memorial on TV

Nigel Hanrahan writes:

Samuel Lipnowski (2281) won the open section with 4.5 points out of 5. Gustavo Melamedoff (1975), David Langner (2261), who came out of a lengthy retirement from over-the-board chess, and Trevor Vincent (2175) were tied at 4/5.

Dezheng Kong, Jordan Kwiatek, and Keith Gannon shared first place in the U1800 section with 4 points. Kong got some media attention as the eight year-old wunderkind of the event. There has already been some local coverage and there should be some national coverage as well this week on the CBC. I had a Yanofsky moment in the event when Dezheng had to be lifted up to mark his win on the results page to the amusement of his mum and gathered onlookers. It would have been funny to get that on TV.

Somewhere, Abe Yanofsky is smiling.
