Results are in for the 2011 San Luis Obispo Spring Open held last Saturday, April 30th!
The event was held at the Masonic Lodge in downtown San Luis Obispo. Except for the occassional door alarm going off it turned out to be a nice location. Thanks again to all the organizers and people that helped with the set up and clean up.
There were a number of upsets and tense finishes.
The Open section saw a tie for first place between Craig Faber of Yorba Linda and SLO Club member Miss Taylor McCreary with 3.5 point each. Taylor McCreary is from San Luis Obispo and is an 8th grader at Laguna Middle School. Both players now qualify as candidates for the Southern California State Championship tournament this summer. Kyle Reib of Santa Barbara and George Miller followed with 3 points each and SLO Club Member Solomon Ruddell rounded out the top finishers with 2.5 points. The under 1700 prize was shared between locals Mark Donovan and Robert Vandenouden along with Bradley Rush and Thomas Griffin.
The Reserve section had first-timer James Wilson in clear first with a perfect score of 4.0. Four players shared the next highest score of 2.5 including Fred Brown, Howard Gaxiola, Isaac Ruddell, and first-timer Jared Levenson.
