Canadian Open Results!

GM Luke McShane (England) wins the 2010 Canadian Open!

Was nice viewing the last round on site (especially after all the monroi device miscommunications - the kids, and some adults, got a good laugh seeing the king "jump" across the board, ending up next to the other king in the Noritsyn-Rozentalis game). McShane won a relatively quiet endgame, never really allowing his opponent a chance to come back. Many other interesting matches - all points (and prizes) were well-deserved! Congrats to participants, volunteers, organizers, and sponsors for a successful event.

'Til next year!
