Blitz Tournament 12/28/11

Blitz Tournament on 12/28/11   7 PM

G/7 with 2 second delay, Not rated. $5 entry fee. We used a 3 point McMahon pairing system with Exp = 3, A = 2, B = 1, C/D = 0. We enforced touch move and also loss of game for an illegal move.   

We had a good turnout of 24 players and played 8 rounds. Here are the players in rating order, along with their final scores (including McMahon points) 

5 Experts: Raoul Crisologo (8 1/2) , Jim Humphrey (8 1/2), Alejandrino Baluran (8), Ben Barquin (9) and Bob Defore (7).

4 Class A: Brian Polka (6), Buddy Morris (5 1/2), Madhavan Vajapeyam (6) and David Pino (3).

6 Class B: Chuck Ensey (5), Hector Gonzalez (5), Manuel Mayo (5 1/2), Zechariah Zhu (5), Mark Lawless (4) and Sam Barboo (5).

3 Class C: Tom Webb (2 1/2), Roger Wathen (4 1/2) and Daniel Zhu (4).

6 Class D/E: Karl Lindberg (3), David Palmer (3), Stephen Zhu (4), Justin Webb (3), Ross Blum (2) and Andrew Liu (5).

Also Phil Skiba (5) filled in as a house player for David Pino who left after four games.

Everybody had fun and I think it went quite well. Maybe we should do this more often! All entry fees were returned in prizes. Here were the Prize Winners:

First Place: Ben Barquin (9), $30

BU2000: Brian Polka (6) and Madhavan Vajapeyam (6), $12 each

BU1800: Manuel Mayo (5 1/2), $25

BU1600: Andrew Liu (5), $20

BU1400: Stephen Zhu (4), $20

Total Prizes: $120          

Next week: Round 1 of the Alina Markowski Open. 7 rounds, 40/90, SD/60, d/5. $25 entry fee. New club memberships are also due ($60 adult, $48 Senior, $30 Junior). This will be in one big open section, so for the first few rounds you will play someone much higher or lower rated. We expect about 90 players total.
