    Alex Davies won the Sunday Rapid with 4.5/5, conceding a draw in the last round to the woeful TD.
    Only one of the 13 players who competed in the RACC Sunday Rapid on Mother's Day remembered to bring his mother: Daniel Xu, who finished clear second with a trail of experts in his wake.

    Those who did show up, in addition to playing, had the added fun of picking through some of Stijn De Kerpel's chess books -- which he is culling before an upcoming move.

    Same time next week.

    Three new players (!) but once again, good weather = smaller turnouts.

    PS: I decided to leave in the "dates" --- courtesy of f****** MS Word, which insists on formatting based on the assumption that all its users are morons --- on the same ground I that I think that southern Confederate statues should not be removed: they should stand as a permanent reminder of how awful were the people who created them.

    More good weather means more small turnouts... but also three new players!
    Armando Valdizon tops the cross-table again, tied with the unscrupulous TD, who (once again) uses a full-point-bye to sneak onto the podium.

    The RA Sunday Rapids continue... with or without posted results :P

    Good weather generally means poor turnouts (as does World Cup soccer, it seems) so recent turnouts have been lower than usual, but quality... quantity... etc.

    Based on last week's results, it seems that wherever it was that David Gordon and Bill Doubleday went for lunch, it was:
    • slow service (they both arrived late)
    • good for their chess (!?)

    For the sake of all who might not be fully informed about the RA club's Sunday chess policies, could someone indicate if there is no visitor's charge for coming out to the club this day of the week, and/or no charge for playing in the (informal) events posted about in this thread.

    As far as I am aware, yes, this is the case, no charge to come out.

    It has been free for the past 3 years, and continues to be for the rest of the summer.

    We may change that in September.
