    Default Summary of Oakville Winter Open Feb 2-4, 2018

    Here is the summary of the Oakville Winter Open which was held last weekend at Holiday Inn, Oakville Feb 2-4, 2018

    Highlights of the tournaments

    1. First of all, I would like to thank MCC and BCC for the usage of the chess clocks and IA Danny Goldenberg and MIkhail for their superb running of the show. Thanks to all the volunteers and all the participants without which this tournament would not have been successful. Thanks to a couple of sponsors for this tournament as well.

    2. We have 185 players attended in our maiden tournament.

    3. Results

    4. Pictures

    5. Live games ( Round 1 to 5 )

    6. Winners ( 58 winners )

    7. We started on time on most of the rounds except one round where there was one games which ended very late.

    8. Merging of the two groups ( 2 days and 3 days ) in round 3

    9. Great feedback from participants and parents. Some asked when is our next tournament.

    10. Tournament results submitted to CFC for FIDE and CFC rating on the same day it ended. Kudos to IA Danny. It was CFC rated last night. Link below

    We certainly enjoyed hosting the tournament for you guys although it was indeed a tiring throughout the 2.5 days tournament. We proved that this US styled run tournament is workable in Canada with the entry fees and the number of players.

    Will we do it again ? Certainly if parents and players continue to support our tournaments and programs etc

    Send us your feedback/reviews at ( positive or negative so that we can elevate your chess experience further )

    Our next tournament will be Feb 24-25, 2018 - Ontario Girls U19 CC and Mississauga CYCC qualifier . Link below

    Cheers to Chess in Canada
