  1. T.D.: Is this the final pairings? My Budafest Defense and Alekhines and French D. are waiting for them. Is PJ ready for the pacman? If PJ is not ready for tactical maneuvers, he can still take a bye. just having fun!

    Chuck: with a lots of upsets, it's just shows that some of the players are improving and a warning to veterans like us.

  2. These are certainly NOT the final pairings, you never know who might take a bye, In fact I have already changed these pairings 4 times! First Jason Qu withdrew, then Lennart Mathe took a bye. With one big section, if the top board takes a bye it often affects a lot of the lower boards, but not all of them as you might think. Peter Bisgaard also took a bye which changed a lot of the pairings back to the original set I first did! Weird... David Hart might change his mind about withdrawing, at least I hope he will, with all the byes and upsets, he is still a likely top finisher. The club championship just wouldn't be the same without him, we need our masters to make the field as strong as possible for the good reputation of the club...

  3. Chuck: Thx 4 ur response. It's clear that writing W/D, (after his name) or telling verbally on the nite or after the rd is done, does'nt mean it's already official. Probably the player is just upset for that particular game, there 4,might change his/her mind to play the next rd as soon as the wounds are healed. With due respect (WDR)... Ed.. mine was different.."old adage"

  4. A player can take a bye at anytime. Right after the round or as soon as they know is best, but they can request one up until 6:30 PM on Wednesday by calling the club telephone at 619-239-7166. Verbally telling the TD is fine, but I always tell them to write W/D next to their name on the pairing chart so I don't forget. The same is true of withdrawals. Sometimes players are upset with a loss and withdraw right after the game, but a few days later, with a clearer head and with some time to heal their wounds, we are able to convince them not to withdraw...

  6. The two biggest upsets this round were William Wijaya's win over Expert George Zeigler and Tom Fries win over NM Bob Richard. Newcomer and strong Class A player Paul Agron continues to impress, this time upsetting Expert Jim Humphrey. Paul seems to be angling for an expert rating for himself. Some upset draws were earned by Fawsi Murra Jr. with NM Todd Smith and also Bob Draper managed to hold expert Ron Soto to a draw. On the lower boards, the biggest upset I noticed was Mark Lawless' win over Brian Kelly. Oh, and Mike Friedel upset house player David Whitten. And welcome to Mike Kantro who stepped in as a house player and lost his first game at the club, but he appears to have a fairly good feel for the game and I predict he will be rated around 1400 to 1600 initially and with some experience he may move well over that quite quickly.
