The Southwest Chess Club meets each Thursday night at the Hales Corners Village Hall/Police Station, at 5635 South New Berlin Rd, Hales Corners, WI, downstairs Community Room. Club opens at 6 PM, Tournament Games at 7 PM.
Allen Becker will be back to defend his title, after winning Winter Blitzzard VI last year, so come on out and see if you can wrestle the title of Blitzzard King away from Allen!!
This is usually a very strong event with Masters and Experts galore. So come on out.
If you stand still besides the board you can hear it . . . the Blitzzard's footsteps, the sound of falling pawns, knights, bishops, rooks and queens amidst the force of a Winter's wind.
Sorry, the pieces are too humongous to play blitz.
Very exciting as anticipated and some fun Chess this evening. Thanks guys!
The blitz had three sections last night. The first section (7-player double round-robin) was won by Erik Santarius and Alex Betaneli (a tie) with 11 points each; the second section (5-player double round-robin) was won by Shiva Suri with 6 points; and the third section (5-player double round-robin) was won by Alan Buschmann with 7 points. Congratulations to the winners!
Here are the USCF crosstables for all three sections:http://www.uschess.org/msa/XtblMain.php?201203011122
