Jonathon Zaczek continued his fine play of late, winning the 2010 Abe Yanofsky Memorial, giving up only a last round draw to Waldemar Schulz enroute to a 4.5 score. Sam Lipnowski survived against John Klokow in the final round to finish at 4, while Schulz, Arvin Dawa, Aron Kaptsan, and Tony Boron tied for 3rd with 3.5 points.
Klokow and Jim Lauritson split 1st-2nd U2000 prizes with 3 points; Harley Greenberg got 3rd U2000 with 2.5 points.
The U1800 Section was won by Leor Wasserman and Michael Pang. The top U1600 and U1400 prizes were combined and split by Francis Trueman, Sashika Kumaragamage, and Henry Li. Alex Iomdina will be pleasantly surprised when he learns that he won the 2nd U1400 prize.
