  • Waterdown Chess Club Challenge April 14, 2018 (Summary )

    First of all, I would like to thank our sponsor Manzer Insurance services, our venue St James United church, TD Ferdinand Supsup, volunteers who helped out during the tournament, all participants and parents for our successful tournament.

    We have players from Markham/Toronti/Brampton/Mississauga/Oakville/Kitchener/Dundas/Etobicoke/Burlington/Hamilton and Waterdown participating in this tournament.

    We had a 55 players turnout with 2 withdrawals and 2 additions at the last minute. It is very close to our target of 60 players. Last year we had abut 30 players.

    3 tournaments in a day - Rapid, Blitz and bughouse ( double chess )

    Speed Chess king NM Mark Plotkin came all the way from Toronto and made a sweep of all the events. He tied for first with local hero FM Eugene Hua in the rapid section and clear first in the blitz section. Later he teamed up with Max Rusonik to win the bug house event. What an eventful day with the bad weather came in at the end of the tournament. Tournament started on time from 930AM and ends at about 5.30PM

    Please find the results of the tournament below :
