2019 BC Open


The BC Open (16-18 February, Executive Plaza Hotel, Richmond) easily exceeded last year’s record attendance with an amazing turnout of 185 players.  The key to success, as usual these days, is to attract a large contingent of juniors.  The U1000 section, with 67 players was large enough to merit a private playing hall and a dedicated tournament director.

The Premier Section was led all the way by FM Grigoriy Morozov.  Only a last round loss to six times BC Open champion FM Tanraj Sohal prevented Morozov from claiming clear first, instead tying with Sohal at 5-1.  First and second place prize money was equally split ($600 each). Since Sohal and Morozov both had already qualified for the 2019 BC Closed by virtue of being 2018 BC co-champions, Davaa-Ochir Nyamdorj was given the nod based on a third place tie-break.
An interesting appearance in the Premier Section was Joe Oszvald, former BC Champion and winner of the 1975 BC Open.  After a long absence from competitive chess, Joe is back!

Jaylord Talosig captured first place in the U1900 Section.  Jaylord has been competing in Vancouver Chess School tournaments for the past two years and decided to enter his first major event, with outstanding success, giving up only one draw to second place finisher Ryan ZhiQi Huang.  The U1500 section winners was Pavanpal Singh Bhasin at 5.5.

The U1000 section standings were rather unusual with two unrated players, Ace Palolan and John Beddoes topping the cross-table with 6-0 and 5.5-0.5.  As unrated players are ineligible for class prizes, first place was shared by three players with 5-1 scores – AryaCyrus Boroomand, Sina Soleimani Pari and Neo Huang.  Palolan and Beddoes captured the two unrated prizes.

The BC Open seems to have found a good niche in the chess calendar, occupying the Family Day Weekend.
