LCCC Tourney for Beginners a Success!
Twenty-one players this Monday night, including one new member – Zach R! Welcome Zach. He jumped right into the spirit and challenges all comers and posted his name on the Ladder Tournament! Fantastic!
The tournament was won by Eman P in a tough game with Luigi M. Congratulations to Eman.
Everyone who participated in the tournament won either a Chess Life or a Michigan Chess Association magazine to help with their chess “homework.”
The Ladder Tournament fired up again, sparked I hope by our Beginners tournament. We added five more rungs!
Anyway, Tim P won his game to move up two spots. Nice job Tim.
The Top Dog on the ladder for quite a while was Scott M. He has fought off numerous challenges and it sure seemed like he was never going anywhere. And rightfully so, because Scott is a great chess player.
Scott defended the first game, and graciously agreed to a Quick 10-minute game with yet another challenger – Mike N – who took the victory on a possibly too quick resignation from a tired Scott.
So Mike N is the new Top Dog, but really is only keeping the throne warm for the rightful owners who will be back to claim it shortly! But that is the fun of the Ladder.
A reminder that the LCCC League Night resumes next week at 7pm. If you are on a Team, be there or make arrangements with TD Terry G.
If you are not on a Team, show up anyway to substitute or watch the action, or play your own Ladder game or just play and study for fun.
Either way, be here!
