    Open
    1st - IM Mark Chapman 8/9
    2nd - FM David Cannon 7.5/9 (MCC Allegro Champion)
    =3rd - IM Alexei Khamatgaleev and David Beaumont 7/9

    U1800
    1st - Daniel Poberezovsky

    U1500
    1st - Arthur Gao

    U1200
    =1st - Juztyn Starc, Elizabeth Warren (+3rd player)

    Biggest Upset

    I know I've omitted some other names, so hopefully the tournament will soon be uploaded to Tornelo for the full results to be seen.

    Will the event ever be uploaded on Tornelo? It’s currently unlisted and classified as an unrated event.
