USCF: Harper College Chess Tournament
April 8th, 2017, I hosted my first ever USCF tournament at Harper College.
45 total players competed; 25 in the open section and 20 players in the U1700 section. In the open section, there were 6 experts and a master in the field.
I had a lot of fun hosting these tournaments, and hope to host more tournaments in the future. In this blog, I asked some players to send me their games. The games you see are games that have been sent. The tournament was a 3 round Swiss-System, with a time controls of G/60; +30 second increment.
In the first game, I like to talk about this young talent, William Wang. His rating is 1809, and he played three games, all against experts with a plus score! Here is his round 1 game against a 2034:
