I don't suppose there's a list of pre entries for this is there?

After Round One SWCC has 9.5 out of 10...

JB said...

I stink! 9.5 out of ten, huh?Thanks for rubbing it in!(LOL) Turns out I agreed to the draw in a won position but I just didn't see how to do it. Oh well, I have to start practicing.

Chris said...

That's alright John, I wound up losing to a player rated 300 points lower than me. I made some sloppy moves, she made some sloppy moves, and the last blunder was mine...

Now that's a good club teammate, sacrifice a game just to let me feel better! :) It dawned on me though, that my results have been in the crapper ever since smoking was banned at the tournaments. That was always a good way to throw the little ten year old geniuses off their game! :o

Chris said...

Yeah, just til they light one up and blow it right back at ya...

Wait...who is the genius?

JB said...

I'm certainly not. I didn't even learn the moves until I was 14.

With 10 players in this event, the Southwest Chess Club accounted for approximately 15% of of the participants. Amazingly, none of us had to play against each other in any of the 5 rounds. This club travels well.

Congratulations to Vijay Raghavan, Aaron Jing, and Jim Kinsman for winning the tournament!
