    Unhappy 2019-09-15

    Another beautiful Sunday afternoon, another smallish turnout, and another win by the TD.

    The last hot Sunday of the year saw both first-timers and long-absent-returnees. Armando Valdizon looked to be a lock for the win with 4/4, but Derek Wang beat him in the final round to create a three-way tie for first with Johnahan Han.

    Grand Prix
    The four September 2019 events were a Grand Prix, where the player with the most points from their best three events wins their choice of book prize or the latest issue of New in Chess. The overall winner (unfortunately) was the TD, who claimed the "Karpov: Move by Move" book by Sam Collins... and decided to give a prize to the second-place finisher, who turned out to be the one player in Ottawa who can be guaranteed to say that he needs another chess book like a hole in the head: Gordon Ritchie.

    Best 3 of 4 results:

    1. John Upper 14
    2. Gordon Ritchie 9.5
    3. Zhou Fang 8.5
    4. Johnathan Han 8 (on only 2 events!)
    5. Kamal Balazadeh 7.5


    Next Grand Prix: probably November.
    Book prizes include: The King J.H.Donner; Nottingham 1936, Alekhine (algebraic ed.); Heroes of Classical Chess & The Giants of Strategy, double volume by Pritchett and MacDonald.

    • NO SUNDAY RAPID Sept 29 - EOCA Event at the RA

    Only 8 players, and a superfluous TD, and all of them were losers (at least once each)... Johnathan Han, Gordon Ritchie, and Alexander Stopic, dropped the fewest points and tied for 1st-3rd with 4/5.

    Thanks to the players who took some time out from a beautiful Sunday afternoon to play... including three first-timers!

    Everyone who played was a winner!

    But, in a more real sense, Ehsan Forouz and the TD were the winners.
