The closing dinner was in a great room overlooking the ferries coming and going to the island. Ted Winick played the piano. There were around 10 round tables of guests. One guest sponsored a table of Olympiad team members. Larry Bevand was at a table with mostly women.

Winner Luke McShane praised the tournament conditions as being of the highest quality he has ever played in. When he was a child, he defeated a street player for $10, but his parents gave the money back.

Special awards were given out to volunteers Erik Malmsten and Maurice Smith, the latter for 22 years of service. Maurice just wants to play chess now.

David Cohen presented IM Zvonko Vranesic with an award for being selected to the Canadian Chess Hall of Fame.

Vranesic spoke of his computer engineering students’ frustration in making early chess programs. He had made a GM norm, but thinks the days of amateurs like him sniping points from GMs is over. Today’s game is more complex and requires preparation.

Brian Fiedler presented the awards to the winners, often sharing stories about playing them. Sponsors from Deloitte and Marks also presented awards.

Chess Quotes


And for the chess-player the success which crowns his work, the great dispeller of sorrows, is named "combination."
