TCCL Results – LINK
GOLD: The Ultimates beat B2 or Not B2, 3.5-0.5 to move into 5th place. B2 or Not B2 is now in 7th place, but still have a chance to move up by the end of the season.
BRONZE: The Rookies and the Knights both won their matches. The Rookies now sit in FIRST PLACE! Barry and Dennis have won all their games so far! Dennis leads all board 3 players with 4/4 and Barry is in 2nd with 3/3. Barry subbed (and scored a win) for the Ultimates in the one match he missed for the Bronze. The Knights are in a very respectable 6th place out of 26 teams. Paul Kinion is leading all board 4 players with 3.5/4!
RCTC President’s Cup – RCTC Chess Flyer
Please email Dennis Mays, firstname.lastname@example.org, to register!
The tournament is primarily for middle school students, high school JV players, and RCTC students. However, high school varsity players are invited play in an informal varsity-only section. This would be a good warm up for the RASCL season which begins on Thursday, Jan 8 at John Marshall High School. Remember the tournament is free!
