Chess 960 (Fischer Random) Won by Jason Morris
Alexandra Kosteniuk giving a simil.
No surprise there as Jason is the highest rated player at
LCCC. But to win any tournament - and especially undefeated in a style you
never played before - is still special.
Everyone seemed to enjoy the change of pace tournament. The
utter randomness of the starting position made for some very anxious moments at
the start of the games.
Congratulations to Jason as he is the 2013 LCCC Chess 960
Here are the final standings:
1. Jason M - 4 points
