Summer League May Be Over, But Exciting Chess is Still Possible at LCCC

We had a nice crowd of 17 players this Monday night. No League play, no tournament happening, but good chess still does.

You can still get a lesson. You can still get a casual game. You can still get a speed chess game. You can get a Fischer Random 960 game.

Or you can step up to our always running Ladder Tournament. Start at the bottom and work your way up the rungs. Beat someone higher than you and move up – lose and you stay put, but the winner moves above you. It’s as easy a tournament as that.

We had action of all types tonight. We had some ladder games that will appear here later.

The big announcement is that LCCC will be running a Fischer 960 tournament soon. Be sure to sign up for it by email or on Monday nights at the club.

White to move and win.
The tournament will probably be four rounds – and it will run every other week! This will give the players two weeks to get their game in.

Obviously vacations happen in the summer and you may miss a week. Hopefully the two week window to play the game will help with that.

Final details about the 960 tourney to follow.

In the meantime, here is a puzzle for you to enjoy. As usual, the answer will appear in the comments soon.
