The Berkeley Masters Tournament

Somehow I missed this important tournament, but it's never to late to post the results. The event was held on December 17th-23rd 2005 at East Bay Chess Club. I said important tournament as one of the US hot prospects IM Josh Friedel has earned his (first?) GM norm! In addition, FM David Pruess earned IM norm. Congratulations!

Here are the final standings (Ratings are FIDE):
1. IM Josh Friedel (2453) 7 points out of 9 games
2. GM Jaan Ehlvest (2618) 6,5
3-4. GM John Fedorowicz (2502) and IM Jesse Kraai (2428) 6
5. IM Ricardo de Guzman (2383) 5,5
6-8. FM David Pruess (2400), FM Alan Stein (2422) and IM Justin Sarkar (2315).

There were 24 participants.
