10 players showed up for the Hawaii Memorial Weekend Open at the Atherton YMCA.  Despite the low turnout there was high drama.  The tournament was won by Charles Sonido, who played well above his 1700 rating, going undefeated with 4.5 points out of 5.  Charles took down three higher rated opponents and gained almost 150 rating points!

For complete results, see the tournament crosstable on the USCF website.  We also posted a small photo gallery from the event on Facebook.
