CHESS on this Super Bowl Sunday, Feb.13, 2022
Chess over the boards is still available after 3:00 p.m. at our spacious Carl's Jr. venue this coming Super Bowl Sunday, across the parking lot from our regular Starbucks venue. Players of all ages and skill levels are welcome.
Featured this Sunday, Feb. 13: There will be one USCF-rated 4th round match as part of our club's 4-Round Tournament which concludes next Wednesday afternoon, Feb. 16 at the same place, with six matches.
This Sunday's lone rated match will be between Irakli and Vishwa. By agreement, their game clock starts no later than 4:00 p.m. Irakli is ahead of the pack by a slim margin, and a win will probably guarantee at least a tie for 1st place for Irakli. However, a win by Vishwa would vault Vishwa into 1st place! Ohh the drama! The Tournament Director will be there.
Next Wednesday's rated 4th-round matches to complete the tournament will have clocks start no later than 4:30 p.m. The pairings are: Yance vs. Mike; Setsal vs. Tony; and, a rated match between Matthew and Bert (who has agreed to join the fun as a "house player" to round out the tournament matches, owing to Chris's withdrawal after a couple of rounds)!
See you soon, and it's great to know that our next club tournament will very likely have at least a dozen players in a 5-round tournament with even higher $$cash prizes !!
