Player of the Month for October 2008      

International Master (IM)

FELIX VILLARREAL

 

International Master Felix Villarreal easily won the SDCC Fall Swiss with an unbeaten score of 5-1 (a draw with NM Carl Wagner in round three and a bye in round five).  It is wonderful to have a player of Felix's stature play regularly in the local club.  Felix was on the chess Olynpic Team for Mexico and has a classical defensive style with deep positional insights but will drop a 'petit combinasion' on you like Capablanca if you let him.

Felix Villareal also teaches chess and has a number of his students also play regularly at the club with him.
