Final Standings, Waltham CC Summertime Thematic Tournament – 06-22-2018

Fellow Waltham CC players,

On the longest day of the year, 13 players gathered at Waltham Chess Club for the first ever Thematic Tournament. We ran the pilot Thematic as an unrated event, 4-Round G/10 d0 double Swiss. The openings played were: Round 1, Queen’s Gambit Accepted; Round 2, Ruy Lopez; Round 3, Nimzo-Indian; Round 4, King’s Gambit Accepted.

Our newest player, Daniel Korbacher, has already distinguished himself as a relatively new USCF player by winning prizes at each of the events he’s played in. We hope he’ll continue to come and improve as he plays in diverse time-controls tournaments.

Winners:

1st Place: Ilya Rozonoyer

2nd Place: Yuriy Zhaurov

3rd Place: Alan Song

U1800: Daniel Korbacher

Please notify me if you enjoyed having a Thematic and would like to see more of them. We can make them Rated and can feature other Openings or even have a single Opening used all night.

Blitz next week. Thanks and see you over the board.
