Monday 070615 Casual Chess had it All – 960 Tournament Resumes Next Week

Chess is for everyone!

We had casual chess on tap tonight with regular chess, speed chess and 960 chess all going on at the same time.

Eight players showed for the hot chess action in the cool chess “arena”. We had a new member and a visitor show up this evening.

We welcome Don W to the LCCC!

In 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.

Now 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):

Board 1: Gene M (W) – Vince V (B)
Board 2: Mike N (W) – Paul M (B) (postponed until July 20)
Board 3: Luke S (W) – Tom H (B)
Board 4: Zack R (W) – Ken T (B) (postponed until July 20)
Bye – Tim R

So 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.

Now 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!
AND – 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.

Your 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.

So right now, I leave you with this puzzle. Good luck!
