Isaac Wiebe and Gustav Baron shared first place with 3.5 points. The top U2000 prize and top U1800 prizes were shared by Ethan Eckert and Zachary Piche, each with 3 points. Those results freed up the lesser U1800 and U1500 Prizes for Jim Melnyk, Gavin Wijaweera, and Richard Ott, who each scored 2 points. http://www.chessmanitoba.org/tournaments/2020/2020_Feb_TNT.htm
