Yale’s top scorers were Ananth and Vance, both with 2.5/4. Along the way, Vance managed to draw International Master Victor Shen as White. Shen played absentmindedly in the beginning, allowing Vance to steer the position into a symmetrical, equal endgame. Shen then pressed, advancing his bishop and queen into Vance’s territory, but lacking weaknesses to attack, eventually had to settle for a draw.
