Game Of The Year XI

Game Of The Year XI

Aug 22, 2014, 10:09 AM |


On August 19th, the Colorado Springs Chess Club held its 3rd Tuesday of the month event:  Quick Swiss.  However, the players agreed to change the Swiss tournament to a Round Robin tournament after Jeff Fox's suggestion and extended the delay to 5 seconds after Earle Wikle's preference.  Earle's change paid bigger dividends, as he tied with NM Buck Buchanan for the 1st place tour points.

Next Tuesday:  Thematic (August's Theme: Scotch Game 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 exd4)

The Quick RR has been rated:

This week's position come from only upset victory this year.  White to move.
