Markowski Rd 3

Alina Markowski Open  - Round 3 of 7    1/20/10    7 PM   

This is the qualifier for the San Diego Club Championship (16 players, 4 already seeded in) and this event also qualifies 16 players for the Reserve Championship, which is for players rated U1800.  A Women's Championship will also start on 2/24 if we have enough interested ladies. These 3 concurrent events are known as the Cyrus Lakdawala Championships.   

Two byes are available, so it is not to late to join this event; there are still 5 more rounds. If you are already in this event and need a bye, you can get a 1/2 point IF the request is in time, that is, before 6:30 PM the night of the round. Please call the club phone at 619-239-7166, or email chucnglo@aol.com before 4:00 PM Wednesday to request a bye or to withdraw.

Entry Fee is $25, and everyone must renew their San Diego Chess Club membership if they haven't done so already. Club Membership runs on a calendar year basis, good from 1/01/10 to 12/31/10. Dues are $60 a year, $48 for seniors or for active mililtary, $30 for juniors and for players who live across the border in Mexico. Family memberships are $120. There are generous cash prizes throughout the year, so you will have plenty of chances to win that money back and hopefully plenty more.  

The time control for this event is our standard 40/90, SD/60 with 5 second delay. (We will have G/90 events later in the year). To register for this event, please email chucnglo@aol.com or call the club telephone at 619-239-7166. 

Total Players so far: 87   We need 5 more players to tie the record of 92 made in 2008. Calling all players!! Help support your club. We have over 200 members (if you include some of our less active players), but here are the 8 most likely to be persuaded to join us: Saeid Abdoli, Arnold Berlin, Robert Draper, Cristhian Garcia, Manuel Herrera, Dimitry Kishinevsky, Samuel Odedina and Jamieson Pryor. If you know any of these players, give them a nudge in the right direction, or even a small, well placed kick!  Thanks, everyone, great turnout so far, let's make it even better...            

Results for Round 3

Still some large rating differentials in most cases, but the gap is shrinking...and there were lots of upsets this round! If the lower rated player wins or draws I have highlighted the name. Note 8 upsets on the first 13 boards!

Board 1  Ron Bruno (2) - Alejandrino Baluran (2)  1-0

Bd 9  Mario Amodeo (1 1/2) - Matt Souza (1 1/2)  0-1

Oops, Mario overlooked a simple mate in 2 when he was up lots of material. 

Bd 10  Jason Qu (1 1/2) - Chris Wonnell (1 1/2)  0-1  The Longest Game of the Night

Bd 13  Eduardo Vasquez (1) - Nikolay Arutyunov (1)  1-0

Nikolay is convinced Eduardo is very strong. He 1700, but it is only based on 5 games from the 2007 San Diego County Championship. We will have to check and see if this mystery player has a FIDE rating [None that I can find - he is just a good player, nothing wrong with that!].
