    Today's event was a Swiss with 10 players including John Upper(TD and defending champion), Peter Arsenault and 8 other players. It was won by yours truly who found a truly delightful winning move against Ehsan Farouz.
    Next week, the tournament takes a break as the Fall Open takes over the RA facility but it is on again the next few Sundays until the Christmas break.

        Re: Sunday Active at RA Chess Club

        Just to be clear, are these RA Sunday Active events to be or not to be CFC rated?

        Assuming they are CFC rated, for the sake of non-club players who may be unfamiliar with the RA club, fwiw I'm used to the registration fee for club Active events being equal to the CFC rating fee for an Active event (officially called a 'Quick' event by the CFC), that is $3 (currently).

          At this point, they are unrated and open to non-RA members. Come on, come all.

              Fourteen players took part in this Sunday's active tournament at the RA Ottawa Chess Club. Co-winners were FM Alex Davies and WIM Qiyu Zhou (who took a bye in Round One). Alone in third was Bill Doubleday. The event was a swiss format 5-round tournament directed by John Upper. Time control is 10 minutes with a 5 second increment. Next week play resumes under the direction of Halldor Palssen.

                Today saw another strong turnout for the Sunday Active at Ottawa's RA Chess Club. The 14-player event was won by Armando Valdizon with a perfect score of 5/5 after a narrow escape in the final round against yours truly who mishandled a completely won endgame to give him the full point.:p That left WIM Qiyu Zhou alone in second with 4 points, losing only to the ultimate winner. TD was Halldor Palsson and the TC was the usual 10 minutes + 5 second increments.
                Halldor will run the event on Sundays over the holidays so long as enough players are interested.
