2012 Quebec Open Chess Championship

For our friends in the FQE.  The Quebec Open takes place July 21 - 28, 2012 in wonderful Montreal at the beautiful College Brefeuf playing venue.  This place just takes your breath away, it is so gorgeous!

There is only one chess femme competing in the Invitational - WGM Melissa Greef from South Africa.  She is competing in a touch field!  Here are the standings after R4:

There was a great turnout for all sections.  I will report on the final standings of any chess femmes whose names I recognize (I have a very difficult time identifying players with names that don't originate from my own English-speaking background - sorry) at the end of play!  Good luck to all of the chess femmes.  I know some of the ladies who will be competing for the Canadian Women's Chess Champion title in August are playing in this event.
