Philadelphia International 2010

June 25-29, 2010, Valley Forge, PA

The Philadelphia International 2010 was won by IM Bryan Smith who finished on 7/9, a half-point ahead of five other players. Smith was unfortunately a victim of his own success as he missed out on a GM norm having failed to have played against the 3 GMs required.

However, FM Farai Mandizha and Amanda Mateer both put in great performances and managed to play against the necessary opponents for them to score IM and WIM norms respectively.
