2017 Earl Rosenbloom Memorial – Round 1 results

Twenty-two players have started the seven-round tournament, with all the rating favorites winning in Round 1.  However, it wasn’t easy for all; Board 1 attracted a lot of attention all night; the post-mortem confirmed that rating favorite was in serious difficulty.

Can you still join the action next week with a half-point bye for Round 1.
