This is why the LCCC is the best place to play chess!
We had sixteen players show up this week for League night. We welcome a new member also - Joe K.
The league leading 49'ers had the bye week and could only root for the Owls to at least draw the Tigers to give the 49'ers the league title. Alas, the Tigers were up to the challenge and won the match 2 -1!
This put the Tigers within 2 match points of the 49'ers! This sets up the Position Round for the title! A victory would give the Tigers a tie for match points but give them more Team Points - and thus the title! A drawn match would give the 2016 League Title to the 49'ers by match points 14 to 12.
This will make this match very exciting!
How we will decide colors is the top boards will draw and then the colors will alternate from there.
Here are the line ups for the 2016 LCCC League Position night on Monday March 7 at 7pm!
Board 1 - 49'ers - Ken T vs Tim R - Tigers
Board 2 - 49'ers - Paul M vs Nick D - Tigers
Board 3 - 49'ers - Tom H vs Sam T - Tigers
Good luck to both teams.
In the other match, the Thunder and the Flyers drew their match 1.5 - 1.5. This gave the Thunder sole possession of 3rd place.
The game winners this night were Tim R, Gene M, Don J, Sam T and Dan W. Luke S and John R fought to a draw. Congratulations players.
49'ers - 13 match points - 15 team points
Tigers - 11 and 15
3rd - Thunder - 7 and 11
4th - Owls - 5 and 9.5
5th - Flyers - 4 and 8.5
Next week - Feb 29th - is open, casual chess. It is a good night to bring the youngsters as other young players will be attending. Also the more 'experienced' players will be around to offer advice.
Come on by for a great night of chess. We open at 6pm.
