    Thanks to Lazar (and Abdelaziz) for running the Sunday rapids for the past two weeks, and thanks again to Lazar for posting the results online.

    I was taking pix at the 2018 Canadian Junior final round on Sunday. I will be back, but there is NO SUNDAY RAPID at the RACC on Sunday August 19 as the Smiths Falls Open will be that weekend, and we don't hold rapid tournaments which conflict with EOCA events. If you want to play chess that weekend, try this

    The RACC Sunday rapid returns August 26.

    Default 2nd Annual Smiths Falls Open update!

    This year - due to increased registrations (27 and counting), I'm running it with 2 sections: Open (for anyone 1600 or over, basically) - and - an U1600 section - no matter what your rating or skill level is, you will get a good challenge!

    Also - like last year - if there is an odd number of people in either section, I will be available to play as a floater player to ensure everyone who is at the tournament who wants a game, gets a game, regardless of their section, rating, or performance in the tournament itself - so no need to worry about getting a 'forced bye'.

    If have any questions, please see the main thread for the tournament in this forum for more information, or you can contact me at my email address:

    jsztukachess at gmail dot com

    I also will be at the RA Chess Club on Thursday August 16 to take additional registrations. For convenience, you can always send me an email at the above address to be added to the pre-registered list as well.

    After a week off for the Smiths Falls Open, the RACC Sunday Rapid returned... but with only 11 players -- kind of a let-down from the 56 (including three 2018 Olympians) we had on Thursday.

    Armando Valdizon hung a piece in a good position in his last-round game, but still finished atop the mini-field with 4/5.

    Special mention for Neven Sass, who seems to have been doing some studying!

    Code:
    #	Place	Name	        Rtng	Rd 1	Rd 2	Rd 3	Rd 4	Rd 5	Tot
    1	1	Armando Valdizon 2243	+7(w)	+5(b)	+4(w)	+3(b)	-2(b)	4.0
    2	2	Paul Beckwith	2110	+6(w)	-8(b)	+7(w)	=5(b)	+1(w)	3.5
    3	3-4	Neven Sass	unr.	-5(w)	+6(b)	+9(b)	-1(w)	+7(w)	3.0
    4		Houji Yao	2130	H---(-)	H---(-)	-1(b)	+10(w)	+11(b)	3.0
    5	5-6	Bill Doubleday	2098	+3(b)	-1(w)	+10(b)	=2(w)	-9(b)	2.5
    6		Andrew Sass	1436	-2(b)	-3(w)	+11(b)	+9(w)	=10(b)	2.5
    7	7-9	Gordon Ritchie	1767	-1(b)	+9(w)	-2(b)	+11(w)	-3(b)	2.0
    8		John Upper	2210	+10(b)	+2(w)	NOBYE	NOBYE	NOBYE	2.0
    9		Kamal Balazadeh 1775	+11(w)	-7(b)	-3(w)	-6(b)	+5(w)	2.0
    10	10	Michael Shi	1510	-8(w)	+11(b)	-5(w)	-4(b)	=6(w)	1.5
    11	11	Dian Bing Jiao	unr.	-9(b)	-10(w)	-6(w)	-7(b)	-4(w)	0.0
    We're back in the Gatineau room for the next two weeks, and then a Sunday off Sept 16 for the RA Fall Open.

    That's a cool note about Neven, he's one of my private students. I thought(?!) he was improving briskly, but Sunday was a nice confirmation. The breadth of his memory is impressive. When he came over the next day for his weekly lesson, he was very excited! Thanks for running these John, a lot of people seem to be benefitting from them.
