EXTRA: “David’s Best Game Prize” There will be a $5.00 "Best Game" prize for the Ice-covered Tundra Swiss tournament, which will be awarded by David Dathe. This prize will be awarded for the most interesting game played in the tournament. Mr. Dathe will be the judge of any games submitted. All tournament players are encouraged to submit a game. Please submit the game to the TD. The game needs to be legible (readable) so the game can be properly analyzed. All games need to be turned in by the end of the tournament.

If fate names these tournaments...it must suck

I love the club's tournament names. Not nearly enough whimsy in the chess world, IMO.

Gansta said...

I got my money on Williams

Chris said...

Gansta won the bet and the club broke down because too much money went to Gansta.
