Monday 070615 Casual Chess had it All – 960 Tournament Resumes Next Week
Chess is for everyone!
had casual chess on tap tonight with regular chess, speed chess and 960 chess
all going on at the same time.
players showed for the hot chess action in the cool chess “arena”. We had a new
member and a visitor show up this evening.
welcome Don W to the LCCC!
addition, a friend of our club Secretary Don J stopped by on his vacation
travels. Visiting in Walled Lake – Kevin – stopped by to check out LCCC as he
had heard about us from Don. It was great to have you here Kevin.
here are the pairings and the boards for next week’s (July 13) Round 2 of the
2015 Fischer 960 Tournament (starts at 6:30pm):
1: Gene M (W) – Vince V (B)
2: Mike N (W) – Paul M (B) (postponed until July 20)
3: Luke S (W) – Tom H (B)
4: Zack R (W) – Ken T (B) (postponed until July 20)
– Tim R
casual chess will be on July 20th, and the 3rd round of
the 960 tournament will be on July 27. The final round on August 10th.
just because the tournament is in full swing, it certainly doesn’t mean that
casual chess will not be available. There are usually some 960 haters hovering
around looking for a regular game.
Black to move .....and win!
– if you still want to try your hand at 960 and wish to enter the tournament
late – that is no problem either. We will pair you with someone for this round,
or for sure next round.
humble scribe will attempt to analyze some games in time for the next posting,
but summer, yardwork, summer, golf, summer, vacation, summer, BBQ’s, summer,
the lake and summer have all burned up time.
right now, I leave you with this puzzle. Good luck!
