        Great data, thx!

        How many Juniors? Unr/rated. How many Adults? Unr/rated.

        This activity is would be just perfect trial ground for the CFC's new TTP (Trial Tournament Pass) . Give one to both Kimble & Grant!

        Move forward.

          Ramesh played very well to crush an opponent who obviously took him and the game too lightly. Good experience for the youngster and an object lesson for the oldtimer.

            I can't fully answer the adult/junior question, simply because I compiled the stats from the Chesstalk postings, which gives the ratings but not the ages. I could work out the adult/junior ratios for those with ratings from the CFC database, but for unrateds I have nothing to go on.

              Good stuff, regardless!

              So just a thought ...would it serve the RACC to have their own in-club rating system to accommodate the repeating unrated players? Or is that just more work?

                I believe John uses Swiss-sys, which reads the CFC database to track ratings for pairing rules. To have our own in-club rating system would be very difficult to manage in Swiss-Sys or similar software. You would have to generate and maintain a database that the software could read. Lot of work, given the conditions.

                  Let's not forget that the Sunday Active, which is great fun and very popular, is a freebie, i.e. one does not have to be an RA member to play. It has replaced the old blitz tournaments that Roger Patterson used to run and serves as a path into the club for newcomers. It would not make a lot of sense to build a separate rating system for it.

                    14ish players showed up, intermittently, to the RACC Sunday Rapid. Tie-breaks were not necessary because Armando Valdizon won all his games.

                    The Sunday Rapid returns Oct 22, but not Oct 29, when there will be a tournament in Almonte.

                      An interesting afternoon. Six of the top seven players were over 2000 rating. Thanks again to John Upper for organizing the show.

                          Bill Doubleday played an accelerated Swiss Gambit (losing in the first round) to win his last RACC Sunday Rapid before heading to Europe for the World Senior Championship. The TD made his case that, like nuclear war, the only way not to lose at chess is not to play.

                          Reminder: no Rapid Sunday Oct 28 as there is a tournament in Almonte. Sunday Rapid returns Nov 5

                            Same here, John. Since last Wednesday, whenever I access ChessTalk in Firefox, no formatting buttons appear. I had to copy-and-paste tags by hand from my own old posts to do the simplest things like inserting a link.

                            When I tried to access CT in Microsoft Edge (no extensions installed) all hell broke loose, one of those annoying malware pages got activated immediately and wouldn't go away until I killed the whole Edge process via Task Manager.

                            Anyone has similar experience? I'm interested to learn what happens in Chrome or under Linux, but don't have time to try.

                              I'm using Chrome, and it's still happening.
