Schools Out Results

I tried to put a link to the X-table in a comment but it didn't work. You can view the X-table here.

Congratulations to Steve Parsons and Rayane Chatrieux both took home prize money! I was the "goat" this time, losing to Rayane in the first round. Rayane played well and I "forgot" that a Queen can move diagonally!

Johnny has posted pictures on the KCA Web site.

I just talked to Johnny and he told me that Mike Anders "The book guy" will be there! Mike takes trade-ins and buys books, clocks  and used chess sets!

Home Cooking

Jerry & I have played the Piano quite a few times. In fact, we both played the Piano Simultaneously against Chris Bush. One of the Joys and Dangers of playing against people you know is Home Cooking. On Tuesday Jerry whipped up some home cooking for me (with some attribution to a 1946 book called Winning Chess Traps).

Game 75 Tourney To Resume On May 15th!

There seems to be enough interest in continuing our Game/75 tourney on Tuesday nights at the Family Buffet. So we will resume “Tuesday Knights” on May 15th!
We will play 5 rounds. They will be May 15, 22, 29 and June 5 and 19.
There will be a $1.00 charge to offset the rating fee and I hope that if you enter, that you will play in at least 4 of the 5 rounds so that rating norms can be achieved. Joe is very close to getting his Candidate Master norm!
Additionally, Jerry wants to start a monthly Saturday Game/75 tournament. Contact him for details or suggestions.

We Had A Visitor At Our 2nd Tuesday Tourney!

James Ballard came down from Louisville to play in our Second Tuesday tournament and ended up beating Steve Parsons in a nice endgame in the final round!
The event was strong with an expert, 2-Class A, 2-Class B, and 2 Class C players. I wish we could get more of the club membership to turn out for this monthly tourney! Joe Farrell won the event with a score of 3-0.
A thanks goes to Jerry for directing the tournament. The rated crosstable can be seen here!

If you can't really break away during the week and have to get in your games on the back of a taxi; try playing in a New First Saturday Game 75 Tournament hosted by a new area affiliation. Entry fee would be $10 with a 75% payout in prize money.( Please comment on fees you would be willing to pay) In 2 or more sections if at least 4 players commit for each section. Please comment and give any suggestions you may have.
