    Exclamation 2018.10.28

    Posting justified crosstables appears to be one thing a tired old-hand TD can do better than this young upstart Ritchie.

    14		Jim Hegney	unr.	L2	W11	L6	L7	L9	 1.0
    Note: After three years of free entries, starting next week -- November 2018 -- the RACC starts charging non-members $2 to play in each Sunday Rapid tournament.

    PS: Happy Birthday to Mike Schofield, who had the best of reasons to withdraw before the final round.

    Thanks, John, for putting up with a slow learner. Meanwhile, John was so excited to be liberated from his habitual TD duties that he overpressed in a dead drawn endgame against Daniel Xu, with predictable consequences

    Gordon Ritchie once again muscled his way into the TD chair, leaving the old TD with nothing to look forward to doing but losing badly without the comfort of his usual excuses about "TD distractions" ...

    Christian Collins tied for 1st with the new TD, who gave himself a full-point bye in the final round. Complaints should be sent to:

    "Freed from his TD duties, John Upper swept to victory in this hotly contested Sunday Rapid with an unbeaten record. He was followed by the redoubtable Stijn de Kerpel and Halldor Palsson. There is no Sunday Rapid next weekend as the National Capital Open takes precedence at the RA Centre," is how Gordon Ritchie summed up this Sunday's RA Rapid.

    Default Fischer Random - 2018-11-15

    The RACC's annual Fischer Random was won by David Gordon with a perfect 5/5. This is David's umpteenth time as Fischer Random champ. Special mention for William Landstrom, who started with the 4th lowest rating but finished clear 3rd.

    After a player vote, the event was run at 10 + 5 with 5 rounds.

    Code:
    #	Place	Name	      Rtng	Rd 1	Rd 2	Rd 3	Rd 4	Rd 5	Tot

    I've never met William Landstrom, and I agree, THAT'S a great result! Bows again to Dave, who's a continuing Fischer Random fiend! Thanks to John for organizing these!
