    19 players took advantage of a rare Ottawa break between "Spring" freezing rain storms to play in the Sunday Rapid. Daniel Xu, Milos Petrovic, and the peaceably-inclined TD ended in a 3-way tie for first.

    Only 10 nutbars chose to forsake a rare mild day out in Ottawa to stay in and play chess. Ben Kellar lost to Paul Beckwith, but won with 4/5.

    Apprentice TD Gordon Ritchie reports:

    Derek Wang stormed to victory with five straight wins in the April 28 version of Sunday Rapid Chess. En route, he demolished the TD who settled for second place followed another half point back by Joachim Koltz. There will be no Sunday event this week as the Arnprior Open will be held.

    A third unannounced room change in one week was made up for by a free platter of warm baked treats from the RA Centre.... and only a crazy person could think it was anything but an unlucky coincidence that this first-time-ever sticky bun delivery came on the one day in 12+ years that the Club was using freshly cleaned-pieces. Only a 1 in 1152 shot... nothing out of the ordinary... move along.


    Curiously, the TD once again won the tournament. As the quality of his play could hardly account for this result, some speculate that this is yet more evidence that we live in a simulation.

    These seem to be well run events. Is there a reason you choose not to have them rated ? I guess everyone would have to pay an extra $2 (to cover the rating fee) and be CFC members, but maybe you'd get more players to your regular CFC tournaments.

    Sundays have long been a problem at the Ottawa club. With a few brief periods of exception, Sundays were not organized and very poorly attended. Over the last few years, John Upper has turned that around with the format we now use and continues to be the principal force behind our success.
    We use the Sunday events to give our members a chance to play in a more informal setting, putting the fun back into what has become a very competitive scene; and to attract non-members to the game and hopefully to the club. Many of the players on Sunday are not club or CFC members (often playing mainly online) but a small but growing number get hooked and join the mainstream.
    It is telling, however, how many are interested but then balk at the idea of paying CFC membership fees plus RA membership fees plus chess club fees although for a keen player it remains a remarkable bargain.

    Twenty-one players took part in the Rapid Tournament on Sunday 2 June. Notably, more than half were juniors including the top rated, Rachel Miller. In the end, Christian Collins (not a junior) managed to tie for first with young Johnathan Han with an impressive 4.5 out of 5 points. The tournament will run again next weekend with registration between 1 and 1:25 p.m. and clock start at 1:30 p.m. sharp.
