Fellow Chess Players,
Thanks very much to everyone who came to the Fuller Craft August G/30 d5 last Sunday. We had a QUAD Section that ended up averaging over 1875 in rating. This was so intimidating to our kids that I eventually volunteered to play all those heavy-hitters while the kids got to play each other in a separate Swiss Section. I definitely took one for the team, as you’ll see in my results below.
We had mostly new players this time, and I congratulate first-time Fuller Craft players Master Farzad Abdi and Ansh Yadawad for winning their respective Sections, both with perfect 3-0 scores.
Photos are on Facebook and my Blog. Once again I have mounted the photos on my Facebook Group Friends Who Like Massachusetts Chess Association. If you would like to join the Group, please write back and we can Friend each other on Facebook.
And now, starting in September, Fuller Craft Museum will launch its first ever weekly Chess Club. The Club will feature multiple tables for beginner, intermediate, and advanced players, and will offer educational lectures and demonstrations together with recreational play. As we grow, we’ll run some informal tournaments and eventually graduate to USCF-rated tournaments as we now offer on weekends.
