By all accounts our club’s first weekend tournament was a great success. 31 players, including 16 of our club members, competed in three sections; Open, Under 1800 and Under 1400. Congratulations to club member Alfredo Blas for an excellent 1st place finish in the U1800 section. Congrats as well to club member David Han for taking 1st in the U1400 section with a perfect score of 5-0. Kudos also to club members Eric Holecko, Pat Murray, Shaun Mutchler and Ray Sciacca for finishing in a four-way tie for 2nd in the U1400 section.

“But you see, when I play a game of Bobby, there is no style. Bobby played perfectly. And perfection has no style.” –  Miguel Najdorf
