The next three Thursdays (August 26 and September 2 and 9) the Southwest Chess Club presents for you “End of Summer Dog Days Quad” (see below for details). We plan to start games this Thursday promptly at 7:00 p.m. Registration is 6:20-6:50 p.m. Early registration via e-mail is welcome and encouraged! (Robin Grochowski's contact information is given below).
Note that this is a “round-robin” event. Players are put into a quad by ratings (top to bottom), so it is extremely important to let me know whether you are going to play prior to assigning players to the quads. Quads will be assigned at 6:50 p.m. Once quads are assigned, it will not be possible to enter the tournament. If you want to play and are going to be late please let the TD know of your intentions of playing, by 5;00 pm this Thursday, so you can be assigned to the proper quad. Also, since this is a round-robin tournament, it is extremely important that if you sign up to play that you play all three rounds. If you are unable to make all three rounds, DO NOT sign up for this event, as there are no byes. August Supplement is used for ratings.
BEFORE THE GAMES at 6:00 pm, we have LECTURES the next two weeks:
Aug. 26 - Sheldon Gelbart: "Gambits and Positional Sacrifices."
Sept. 2- Nolan Hendrickson: "Combinations"
