Ashik vs Russell Wong, Tuesday Night Marathon, Winter 2013/14, 8th (Final) Round

IM Odondoo Ganbold is champion this time in Tuesday Night Marathon scoring 6.5 out of 8. Today in the 8th and final round he defeated Hans Niemann. I defeated National Master Russell Wong to be jointly runner up with IM Elliott, Steven Gaffagan, Sergei Ostrovosky. In the second board of last round, Hayk was in a better position against Steven Gaffagan as far as I last saw. But they drew and hence Hayk despite being top seed ended after half a point behind us. Here is the final standings - http://www.uschess.org/msa/XtblMain.php?201402258372 It shows my post event rating as 2147!

One very satisfactory thing is the complement I recieved in the current newsletter of Mechanics Chess Institute from IM John Donaldson.
