January 6-8, 2012
The Continental Amateur was held from January 6-8, 2012, at the luxurious Hyatt Harborside Hotel in Boston.
Local Expert Brian Salomon cruised to an unexpected victory in group 1, winning his first four games and holding a tough last round encounter against FM Nathan Resika to take clear first place and $700 for his weekend’s efforts. Resika himself finished tied for second with Matthew Fishbein who had an impressive event and is now firmly cemented as an Expert having just gone over the 2000 mark less than a month ago.
The final standings for all groups, with prizes, are now posted.
