Congratulations to IM Ben Finegold of Michigan, who has won the 7th North American FIDE Invitational tournament, which concluded yesterday here in Chicago. Ben finished 8.0/9, edging out out Illinois state champ IM Angelo Young by a point. Dr. Tansel Turgut finished right behind Angelo with 6.5/9, and he too is to be congratulated for earning a norm toward the International Master title.
See all the games here.
