2016 Michigan Class Championship Results for LCCC – and League Results

Marcello M holds is Champion's Trophy!
Here are the results from the 2016 Michigan Class Championship held this weekend in Lansing.

LCCC had a nice showing of players, but not as many as in the past. Sometimes life gets in the way of chess and we hate when that happens.

In the Novice Tournament, the four – M brothers – Luigi, Americo, Luca and Marcello participated in the Saturday only event.

Marcello finished in 1st place in the Under 800 category. Congratulations Marcello!

In the two-day main event:

Nick D scored a 3 – 2 – 0 in the Class E tournament.
Mike N scored a 2 – 2 – 1 in the Class B tournament.
Paul M scored a 2 – 3 – 0 in the Class D tournament.

Games from the event will be published as soon as the players send them in. We will also have selected games from league action, for the same reason.

Speaking of the LCCC League:

No chance for make-up games due to the snow cancellation last week. This WAS the make-up game week. So the results had to be – what they were.

The Owls defeated the Flyers 2 – 1. Dan W and Mike N won their games, and Don J won on a forfeit, to give the Owls the victory.

The 49’ers runaway train was finally slowed a little and held to a drawn match as Gene M won his game for the Thunder. Paul M won his game on a forfeit for the 49’ers. In the other match it was a double forfeit, so the match tied at 1 – 1.

The standings are now as follows:

49’ers – 11 Match points – 12 Team points
Tigers – 6 – 8.5
Thunder – 4  – 7.5
Owls – 4 – 6
Flyers – 3 – 7

Next week, the Thunder has a bye. The match pairing look like this:
Tigers vs Flyers
Tim R (W) vs Vince V (B)
Nick D (B) vs John R (W)
Sam T (W) vs Dan W (B)

Owls vs 49’ers
Mike N (W) vs Ken T (B)
Don J (B) vs Paul M (W)
Jay S (W) vs Tom H (B)

A win by the 49’ers next week would clinch the league title for them, and we would then move on to the Livingston County Championship. This may be a United States Chess Federation rated event and - open to the Public! So stay tuned!
