It's been awhile since we've had a place where people could get information on when and where we play. I'm not a web designer, but I do know how to use Blogger. So until we come up with something better, this is where I'll be posting upcoming tournament schedules and club news.
You will notice under upcoming events I have posted the dates, but not all the tournament formats. Next Wednesday will be G/25 d5 quads/Swiss.
I had mentioned in one of my recent emails, the possibility of doing a handicap blitz tournament. I've had a few inquiries as to what is handicap blitz? It's a 5 minute tournament, but higher rated player gives time odds based on rating difference. The chart below shows the time odds.
Rating Time Difference
Difference Lower rated's time listed 1st
0-49 5 - 5
50-99 6 - 4
100-199 7 - 3
200 - 299 8 - 2
300+ 9 - 1
This makes things a little more interesting. It is not rated. I will schedule one in the near future.
Tonight there were 10 players in 2 sections. The top section had 5 masters! Josh Colas won the section with 2.5 out of 3. Rusudan Goletiani scored the .5 point against Josh. Leif Pressman and Nicholas De Checa tied for 2nd with 2 points.
In section 2, Conor Grogan scored a perfect 3 - 0.
