Long Island Open
March 16-18, 2012
The Long Island Open was held from March 16-18, 2012, at the Holiday Inn Long Island – Islip Airport, 3845 Veterans Memorial Highway, Ronkonkoma, New York.
GMs Mikheil Kekelidze, Tamaz Gelashvili, Sergey Kudrin and Joel Benjamin all finished at the top of the standings in the Open Section with 4pts but Kekelidze managed to take the title and the $100 bonus prize by virtue of the better tie-break. Going into the final round Kudrin and Benjamin were half-point ahead of their nearest rivals but their draw on board one allowed Kekelidze and Gelashvili to catch them by winning their final round games against Yefim Treger and FM Nathan Resika respectively.
The final standings, with prizes, are now posted for all sections.
