Week Six of the 2013 League Was Big!

More pictures from the Seth Homa simul.
 LCCC set another record for attendance in a single night as twenty-eight players were in attendance. Thanks to everyone who participated in this new benchmark.
Our record at Teekos Coffee and Tea on Thursday night is still at eleven but we are averaging eight players there, so anyone interested can find a chess opponent either night.

The league leading Rabid Squirrels are tied in their match with the Sonics 1.5 – 1.5, with one game to play. If the Sonics can get the upset on Board Two, the league will tighten up and put the Squirrels back within striking distance of pursuers – the Tigers and Flames.

The Tigers drew their match with the Thunder. That will drop them into a tie for second with the Flames, who beat the 49’ers 3 – 1. Here are the current standings:
Rabid Squirrels -  9 points
Tigers - 7 points
Flames - 7 points
Sonics - 4 points - (match 6 currently tied with the Squirrels)
49'ers - 4 points
Thunder - 3 points
The next league night is not until January 27, 2014.

Open chess will be available at LCCC on Mondays – January 6, 13 and possibly the 20th – if the Hartland Senior Center is open on Martin Luther King Day. We will see.

But LCCC will be at the Teekos Coffee Shop in Howell on December 26, January 2, 9, 16, 24 and 31.

To our faithful readers, I just want to say – sorry – for the lack of posts lately. Sometimes life gets in the way of chess. Hate when that happens.

But there will be some great games posted, along with more chess news and updates from LCCC headquarters. So keep us in your holiday read list.

Merry Christmas to everyone and have a very happy holiday.

  1. Hey guys, hope everybody had a nice Christmas. I was able to get the time off to play in the class championships so if anybody is interested in helping me out with some tournament prep at our next meeting I would definitely appreciate it.
    Have a safe and happy new year! I'll see you guys on the 6th.
