Lee and Radford Storm Class Championships

Andrew Lee and Darren Radford stepped up to the action at the Kentucky Class Championships held on Saturday, January 16 in Louisville. Andrew scored 3 wins in 4 games and took 2nd place in the Class E and under section! The performance was good enough to earn him $65 to spend on chess books and to raise his provisional rating to 1188 with 4 more games before gaining a regular rating. Class D seems to be clearly in his sights. Darren scored an impressive win against 1917 rated Randas Burns and a draw against 1930 rated Robert Amback for a total of 1.5 points in 3 games in the A section before coming home with his shiny new rating points. He now stands just 8 points shy of an official A-player status. Congratulations to both players for their performance. For complete crosstables look here.

Wow!!! You guys really made a good showing. Maybe you will inspire some of the others to stick their necks out and play in a class championship. The E-town Club should be proud!!!

I did! I was at Incredible Daves and was thinking that it reminded me of the good ol' days at Bearno's and how it would be a good place to play chess. LOL

I felt a bit rusty but I was pleased with my performance, except for the 3rd round game. I was well outplayed, but it was a good lesson.
