Any pre registered teams?
This sounds like a fun tournament. Too bad USCF doesn't allow $$ as prizes.
For what it's worth, The Racine Chess Club has registered a team consisting of:Matt Waller (2088)Scott Schneider (1923)Nicole Niemi (1860)Art Peel (1700)S. Callaghan (1728) as the alternate.-Matt
We also have a team, "The Four Seniors," consisting of: Becker, Allen; rating 2001Coons, James; rating 1831Grochowski, Andrew; rating 1768Grochowski, Robin; rating 1757Our average rating is 1839.What is the name of the first Racine Chess Club team? I assume there might be more from the Racine Club, so I dubbed you the first!:)
I like Becker's Bitches better.What does "The Four Seniors" mean?
I'm assuming Andrew is a senior in high school and the others are senior citizens
Well. In case there was any doubt, this behavior should prove that chess certainly doesn't produce respect. On the contrary, it seems to stunt maturity in some people.
We have 2 GMs, one IM and many masters with teams already. About 20 teams in the Open and 10 in scholastic so far. Will publish pre-registered teams soon.Thanks,Alex
Well, not quite senior citizens, but not spring chickens either!:)
It's certainly good for WI chess to see a good turnout.Hopefully the new playing site fixes the problems from the last 2 team events, particularly the massive over crowed situation from last years team tournament.
Who is the GM?? Amanov? Hahahahahahah.
Hey Alex,Who is the lowest rated first board in Open??
Is Andrew a senior??
@anonymous 5:42 Yeah since you're OBVIOUSLY better than Amanov. Seriously ANY strong players who play in WI is good for WI chess.
GM A YermolinskyGM D GurevichIM A YoungFM A BetaneliFM R AhundovNM E SantariusNM P KaragianisNM J KaneNM S TennantNM M AcostaNM L WeberHas there been a stronger event in WI ?
No Amanov yet and I am not sure if he is making a team.Lowest board one in the Open is B class I think!Stronger event in WI? The first Roman Levit Memorial had Shulman, Nakamura and Donaldson. The Kittsley Festivals had Goldin, Kudrin and Palos one year. Will have to see the final crosstable of this event first, but it's a good candidate for the strongest event ever!There should not be any problems with space: even if we get 50 teams in the open, there will be plenty! This hotel is top level with the restaurant offering special menu for chess players. Should be a very enjoyable event.There will be a QUICK RATED blitz event on Saturday night!Hope to see you there! There is still time to form a team. It's as social as it gets for chess!!!Alex
Yes, Andrew is a senior.Should be a great event this weekend. Call or e-mail Ashish, as there is still time to sign up to get on a team.
Alright guys, I posted the pre-entries as of today(2/10) on:IAChess.org. I will try to keep the website updated throughout the weekend with both standings and pairings. I am not the Chief TD so I will, hopefully have time to do this stuff. As far as space goes, we have more space than needed. A large skittles room for 150 people. With one room for scholastic and another for open, both would easily fit about 180 people. And we made sure there were enough bathrooms for a large event.
The hotel requires one outhouse for every 100 players.
Has GM Yermolinksi moved to Chicago?
Yermo lives in South Dakota.
...in them Black Hills! Rumor has it that is why he is better with the black pieces!:)
I wish I could have gotten more scholastic teams to this. Too many kids have basketball and other conflicts this weekend... and the Grade Level tournament is next weekend... Only have one team for LDMS.
Well this National event has fixed dates (President's Day weekend) for the next few decades..... We have to make a choice and/or schedule other events at some respectable distance. :-) I wish the organizers of the "Grade Level" would take this into consideration in the upcoming years. Wisconsin holding this National event in the future depends directly on attendance, especially from Wisconsin!Thanks,Alex
Could someone provide details about the Sat night blitz event?
I don't believe it's going to happen. Alex
Great job Trevor on the win!
How about some results?
Looks like the Stacked team of Betanleli didn't do well.Good job Trevor M!
Results (and stories) are on the USCF site for South, East and West. Complete silence from the North...Hmmm
So what team won? Crosstables, etc?
You can see the winner was Pinoy and some commentaryhttp://pannerchess.blogspot.com/
I am guessing Alex did not give us any results because his stacked team "sucked"
