Final Standings, Waltham CC 2017 Blitz Championship – 07-21-2017 – 07-28-2017

Fellow Waltham CC players,
 
              Thanks in abundance to everyone who played in our 4th annual Blitz Championship the past two Fridays. We had a record number of players at 26 (with 19 playing both nights and 17 playing all 12 Rounds), and we had an exceptionally high prize fund: $100-$80-$60-$40-$20. The competition was passionate and got a little dispute-filled at times, but went overall very smoothly
 
              Reigning Blitz Champion SM DENYS SHMELOV handily headed off the runners up to defend and retain his title of WALTHAM CC BLITZ CHAMPION for 2017. He had celebrated his birthday earlier in the week, so the $100 prize with Championship made for a welcome birthday gift.
 
             Winners:
                              1st Place: SM Denys Shmelov
                              2nd Place: Sherif Khater
                              3rd Place: Sergio Dario German
                              U1800: David Milliern
                              U1400: Stephen Desouza
                              Daily Prize: Alan Sikarov
 
              The full standings are given here below my signature and on my Blog, and will be published on the Waltham CC website this week.   Photos have been published on Facebook on the Waltham CC Facebook page and the Bay State Chess Kings Facebook Group.
 
              In just over two months comes our five-week Autumn Open and Invitational Waltham CC 2017 Championship. These award the highest cash prizes the Club offers. The dates are 10/13-11/11, and we hope you can join us.
 
              See you over the board.
 
Nicholas P. Sterling, Ph,D.
Waltham Chess Club
Tournament Director
