  • Ottawa's RA Chess Club Champion's Simul

    At tonight's AGM, the Club Championship trophy was awarded to Francesco Dunne and Zachary Dukic who split the cash prize of $500. Following the AGM, Francesco took on 16 of the members in a clock simul in which all players, including the champion, had one hour on their clocks plus a 30 second increment. This is a very tough challenge indeed as Francesco's opponents, including some with higher ratings, basically enjoyed sixteen times as much time, obliging him to race around the tables playing at high speed. Francesco passed with flying colours, winning seven, drawing three and losing only to six opponents, Daniel Wang, Emil Wang, Amos Kuttner, David Fei, Kamal Balazadeh and Fan Yang. Congratulations to our co-champion and to all who participated in this enjoyable event.
