Annex players on tour!

It’s summertime, and some of our Annex players have had notable results in out-of-town events (Thanks, Erik Malmsten!):


Benasque 2013 Open, Spain

ACC in Spain

There were 428 players in the 2013 Benasque Open including 36 GMs, 5 WGMs, 25 IMs – and 5 Annex players!

  • Michael Humphreys 2183 6/10 +5 FIDE rating points.
    (He defeated a 2342 player but lost to a GM and an IM.)
  • Jonathan Farine 1886 5/9 +44 FIDE rating points!
    (Lost to a WGM and scored 2.5/4 against experts.)
  • Alex Ferreira 1981 5/10 -11 points. (Lost to a GM and an IM.)
  • Carlos Romero Alfonso 1848 4.5/10 +3 points.

    The guys all forfeited a round? Slept in?
  • Shabnam Abbarin 1.5/8 – enough to get her started towards her first FIDE rating.
