9th Annual Los Angeles Open
October 5-7, 2012
The 9th Annual Los Angeles Open was held from October 5-7, 2012 at the Sheraton Four Points LAX, 9750 Airport Blvd, Los Angeles, California.
IM Andranik Matikozyan certainly discovered some great moves on Columbus Day Weekend! The wind was clearly at his back as he swept through a field of four Masters (including 2 IMs), racing to a 2751 performance rating, before trimming his sails with a last round draw against US Women’s Olympian WGM Tatev Abrahamyan to breeze to a first place finish, a whole point ahead of the rest of the galleon. He won the $1,498 First Prize, plus the additional $75 bonus prize for finishing clear first.
IM Roman Yakovsky tied for 2nd with Abrahamyan and California Master Shijie Chen; they each won $499.
The final standings, including prizes, are now posted for all sections.
