2014 Gem City Open

The annual Gem City Open Chess Tournament was held this past weekend in Dayton, Ohio at the Dayton Chess Club. Family commitments kept me away from this year’s event, but the results of the tournament are now available from the USCF and it looks like it was quite an amazing tournament! Ronald Burnett is the #1 rated player in the State of Ohio and he took first place among the 32 participants in the primary open tournament. For details on the Gem City Open and other tournaments in the Dayton area, visit the DCC’s website.
