2017 Arnold Schwarzenegger Open



We had a great turn out this year especially from out of state... so thank you to all that came and supported this event. It was my 3rd year for having chess as part of the Arnold Classic and I am already planning next years Arnold Schwarzenegger Open so mark your calendars as it is always held on the first weekend in March.

This year I added a few special touches...the top 20 boards all had wooden pieces, wooden boards, and clocks provided and an additional 12 boards, pieces, and clocks were provided to the lower sections as well. This allowed for the tournament to run smoother as each round everything was setup ready to go. I also made custom full size score sheets for this event. The white copies had to be turned in in order for a result to be recorded. This allowed me to have all the games played at this year's Arnold which I emailed all the participants a pdf copy of all of these games. If you would like to download the pgn file of all of the games from the Open Section then click on the "Game Archive" link on the left.

Saturday evening I ran a blitz tournament as part of the Arnold as well. It was 9 rounds with 18 players and Ohio State University freshman Mika Brattain took first place scoring 8.5 out of 9.
