<< #38 Raleigh Chess Club vs UNC Chess Club -- #40 Phi Kappa Blanca XLIV >>


  • Tournament #39 : Ram 71, 10/31/92
  • UNC Student Union, Chapel Hill, NC
  • TD: Robert Singletary
  • Section: Octet
  • Time Control: 40/90, G/30
  • Crosstable Link

Late entries can really mess up an Octet and that is exactly what happened here. When I first pulled up the cross table, I had to figure out how my 2nd round pairing happened. Weather this was an Open/U1800/U1400 tournament or an Octet (8 man sections) this pairing should not have happened, but it appears that there were 2 late entries that would have made my section and the open section odd. And since Curtis also lost his 1st round, we were both given byes in our sections and cross paired.

Despite only scoring 1 of 3, my schedule was extremely difficult and I got off to great starts in all 3 games.
