The Tri-Cities chess team had a rough start to the season in September, losing to the very strong Chigorin chess club. But the team came back nicely in round 2, scoring a decisive 6.5-2.5 win against SFU. David and Sherry were joined by chess expert Marek Radzikowski.
We lost round one 2-1when David lost on time in a winning position. The 15 5 time control is very fast. I play practice games at this time control to get used to it.
We won round two 2.5-0.5 and then shut out our opponents in round three 3-0.
I hope to make my season debut if my son's soccer schedule allows it. But perhaps this team doesn't need me.....see you in November.
This is the best picture I have. Tri-Cities chess team is in the foreground. Left to right, Marek, David and Sherry.
