Washington International

At the year's Washington International we conducted a survey of the players. We got about 50% of the players to answer the survey, which is a pretty good rate.

The detailed results are below:

1. Would you prefer a hotel with lower room rates (~$10/night) that requires a shuttle to the Metro and may have less nearby food options?

Yes - 2

No - 36

comments: Great location

The 2nd Annual Washington International was won by GM Yuniesky Quesada Perez (CUB) with a score of 7/9. By drawing his last round game against IM Michael Mulyar, GM Perez finished a half point ahead of Mulyar, GM Ilya Smirin and IM Daniel Ludwig and took home the $5000 first place prize. IM Mulyar had secured a GM Norm in the eighth round when he drew Ludwig. Ludwig earned his third GM norm with his last round draw.

At this year's Washington International we made 30 second highlight videos for each day. Browse through them all and get a feel for the tournament.
