Our first tournament is in the books!
On Thursday, April 13th, 2023, we hosted ten players for an unrated open blitz tournament at Des Moines Gospel Chapel. Quan Luong got clear first with 4.5/5.0 while Max McCall and Matthew Duran shared 2nd with 3.5/5.0.
We had a puzzle on-site which three people solved correctly. From those three, we drew one random winner, and James Senzee got a $5 gift card to our local sponsor, Marina Mercantile!
Many thanks go out to Marina Mercantile for their support along with the Washington Chess Federation and Joshua Sinanan for getting the South Sound Chess Club started with a generous donation of clocks, boards, sets, and helping to promote our new club.
We’ll see you all next week for our first US Chess Federation (USCF) Rated event, which will be Rapid Quads with a G/15+8 time control – free once again. Sign up on the events page!
