Please Note: comments below are made by Chuck Ensey and are intended for entertainment purposes only. I take full responsibility and these comments do not reflect the official views of the SDCC, this website or anyone else. Rick Aeria and I used to write long and lovingly about the Club Championship and we used to try to inject humor and funny photos, captions and cartoons, etc. for every round. We really don't have time to do that anymore (Rick is now in Guam), since the recession has hit our wallets and we all have to work much harder just to try to stay even. Maybe when I retire I can get back to full coverage, but I fear that day is still a long way off. Anyway, if anyone is offended by my lame jokes then I am sorry, we are just trying to liven it up a bit... (Note: comments deleted due to change in pairings)      

Here are the Results for round 4:   

Club Championship (16 players):

Here's how play ended the last few years:

2007 - John Funderburg (5 1/2) and Marc Duesterwald (5 1/2); Todd Smith (4 1/2)

2008Ronald Bruno (6); John Funderburg (5 1/2); Todd Smith (4 1/2), Ignacio Sainz (4 1/2) and Alejandro Garamendi (4 1/2)

2009John Funderburg (5 1/2); David Hart (4 1/2), Todd Smith (4 1/2), Raoul Crisologo (4 1/2)
