Waltham SPRINGTIME Ladder – 03-22-2019

Fellow Waltham CC Players,

On my father’s 87th brithday, I celebrated with all my friends at Waltham Chess Club with the launching of the first ever Waltham Chess Club LADDER! It was awesome to have 17 players give the Ladder Format a try, and I received rave reviews for it. On this occasion, we made this an Unrated event to try it out. Should this format prove popular enough to elevate it, we’ll do some Rated events down the road. We may also put Unrated Ladders on our Pizza Nights.

The best part of the Ladder is that players are paired on a rolling basis, instead of having to wait until all games are finished before being re-paired. Additionally, because games can finish quickly, players can get to play far more than 4 games, as many as 8 in some cases. Therefore, there’s time for lots of chess for everyone ongoing.

We welcomed a new player Sean Barkowsky and hope he will join us on our future Unrated nights.

Winners:

Ladder:

1st Place: Anand Nair
2nd Place: Dattasai Kilari
3rd Place: Daniel Korbacher

Point Score:

1st Place: Stephen Desouza
2nd – 3rd Places (tied): Nagendranath Natti, Sean Barkowsky

LADDER is awesome! See you for the next (likely Memorial Day weekend).
