My specialty is fast chess!:) Should be a good time for all! Both myself and Andrew will be playing.

Last tournament at the Club until next year, so come on out and finish off the year with some great chess!!

Tom said...

Expert Allen Becker also plans to play in this event!!

Robin said...

Also coming (rumor has it) is Williams, Waller, Hayes, Veech and possibly one more expert. However, we have no direct commitments as of yet. But it is shaping up, I believe, to be quite a strong tournament. See everybody tonight!

Yury said...

In general, and especially with a relatively short time control such as this, at what point is it allowed/considered OK to stop writing down your moves in view of time pressure?

Robin said...

It is the same as in any other regular time control game. If you go under 5 minutes you can stop recording your moves.

So who will be paired next week? Perhaps Becker and Aranovich. That will be a good match.

Predict that white wins all the games in the next round.

Maybe draws on board 103, 105, and 106. Pretty sure Allen is champion or co-champion for this one.(Aranovich is the one standing in the way since Bill Williams is down.)

Robin said...

Congratulations to Allen Becker for his 4-0 performance in winning this tournament!!

Tom said...
