Waltham Chess Club – June 2017: SUMMERTIME! 960Chess

Waltham Chess Club – June 2017: SUMMERTIME! 960Chess

Fellow Chess-Players,

It has been a long time since I have posted any tournament results on Waltham Chess Club’s website.  Since then there have been a lot of changes on Waltham Chess Club’s schedule, and one of the more recent ones is the addition of 960Chess, or Fischer Random.

At our second 960Chess Summertime! Tournament on June 23, 2017, we drew in 12 players.   The major procedural change from last time was to randomize the positions better by drawing them directly off the chessgames.com website instead of pre-printing them.  This change definitely made the chosen positions much more varied.

SM Denys Shmelov, Robert King, and Anand Nair split 1st, 2nd , 3rd, and Under 1800 Prizes.   Highlight and Upset Game of the night: Vitaliy Ryabinin defeated Denys Shmelov in Round 2.  Evidently 960Chess is tricky for players at all levels!

Full standings are below my signature.

Blitz Championship in July.  We’ll see you soon over the board.
