The round 5 matches of the Vancouver Rapid League were rescheduled for Thursday February 16. Thursday is the one day I can't get away so David Bissell became the captain and we had to scramble to find two players.
And we did. Javid Mavaddat (1800) and Anna Van (1430) came to play for our team against SFU. The scores matched the order of appearance.
David Bissell came through with 3/3, Javid scored 1/3 and Anna (0/3). Anna found the fast 15 10 time control challenging. I know how she feels. I practice it on chess.com with 15 10 rapid tournaments. It takes time.
Our next match will be more difficult as we face the Chigorin Chess Club which is captained by NM/FIDE CM Roman Jiganchine. Monday February 27, 2017 at 5:30.
