  1. Rd 4 Brad Salz - Rick Aeria ended 1/2-1/2 and both now have 3 points. More troubling, I do not see a rd 5 pairing for Brad Salz. Have I been involuntarily withrawn? What did I do wrong? I want to play. If I am still in, please re-pair.

    Thanks, Brad

  2. Rd 4 Brad Salz - Rick Aeria ended 1/2 - 1/2. Both now have 3 points. I am incorrectly shown with 2 1/2 on board 18. Please correct and re-pair.

    Thanks, Brad

  3. David Hart is shown with 3 points (Hart actually deserves 4-0) but David drew with Belenzon in Round 1 and lost to Salz in Round 3 so Hart should have 2 1/2 points. I guess it must have been a long night for Chuck. My suggestion to ease Chuck's labors is to post the results on Thuirsday and only post the pairings on Friday. This way we get to stretch the 'newsworthy' material and to get the bye information and withdrawals if any by giving the players a day or so to mull over the results.

  4. If Rick Aeria had 2 1/2 points going into round four and drew with his opponent ... let's see, wouldn't he have 3 points instead of 3 1/2?? Quizzical Carey
    PS - I see that less than an hour before I wrote this Rick wrote in to talk about everybody else's score except his own, but then he probably didn't bother to check ...hmmmmm - Quizzical Carey with an addendum

  5. Carey: I agree with you. The correct score should be: Rick Aeria- 3 points, David Hart - 2.5, Brad Salz - 3 points. So far there are 7 players with 3.5 points: Bruce, Sainz, Carey, Chess buzzed, Lennart, Paul and PJ. Must be a long night for Chuck.

    I think some pairings will be rectified. Thx.

  6. Yeah, sorry guys, there was one typo, Hart has 2 1/2, not 3, but the main problem is I had Rick with a win vs Brad Salz in the computer at the club, so that's why the Rd 5 pairings are messed up. I am repairing it now and will have results up shortly.

    OK it is all done now, sorry for the mess. I can't get away with anything, even giving my friend Rick a win over Brad - I didn't think Brad would mind, he is so nice you know... (The game was a draw)

  7. Hello everyone: I want to remind everyone that Grandmaster Ronen Har-Zvi will be making a trip to San Diego in the middle of June. He will be available to do a one hr. lecture followed by a 30 board simultaneous exhibition. He is FIDE 2650+. Extremely knowledgable player. He has beaten Nakamura in 5 minute blitz games previously. I need to know within the next 2-3 weeks if the club wishes to have this event. We need to prepare for it. If not , could Chuck or Bruce or President Rezendes give me a definite no, because the Escondido chess club may be another consideration. I would appreciate clarity on this issue, because I am not sure if the club desires this event. In every body's best chess interest, James.

  8. The problem is we have 2 five round events after the Club Championship and we can't really cut those down to four rounds. The only solution, assuming we want to do this on a Wedneday night (the other option is a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday night which might work, but attendance would no doubt be much less) is to steal a round from the 6 round Jerry Soelberg Open, so that it would start July 8 instead of July 1st. So we would have the simul on June 10th (or the 17th) in the middle of the "Chuck Ensey Doubleheader". One drawback would be the last round of this event would then be July 1st. The last round is the most important round and this might interfere with some people's vacation or holiday plans, being close to the 4th of July. If we keep things as they are, people could take a bye in the first round of the Soelberg Open on July 1st and it wouldn't be as big a deal. Maybe it doesn't matter anyway, I don't know, I am willing to do what ever the majority votes for. Can we have a vote next Wednesday? And please advise exactly what week this would be, the 10th or the 17th. Or maybe another night would be acceptable, say a Tuesday or Thursday, if we had 30 people sign up for the simul in advance then that might work...

  9. It will be the week of June 17th. Thursday night is perfectly OK with me. I just thought Wednesday would have more of a turnout. Vote is perfectly OK . I am arranging this for the club to benefit. I am hosting him for a week in my house. So the intention is to share his knowledge because he is an awesome coach. If we agree to a date and get some sort of commitment from the potential participants, then we can do something. I am open to suggestions.

  10. One night visit of a GM to BCC will add another booster to our club and players. If I need to take a night off, I'll set my pieces for the visitor.
