U1600 Open Section or Section Six:
In what will forever be the inaugural running of “section six” or the Under 1600 open section Sanjana Vittal took home one hundred dollars being the sole first place winner with three and a half points.
Alan Stolyarov, Andreas Oskiper, and the Chins (Jonathan and Angelica), all scored three points and received thirty two dollars each for their efforts. The four tied for joint second through fifth places.
The brave Justin Walker scored half a point and due to his rating was eligible to receive twenty-five dollars for his best result of a player rated under 1200.
Twenty two players participated in the first (but not last) under 1600 open section.
