2014 12/4 Weekly Update

Hope you had an enjoyable Thanksgiving weekend. Welcome to December, last month of the year and a month always made special by the holiday season.

Tournaments
Our 2014 Club Championship tournament continues; you’ll see several members playing their matches every Saturday. Eight competitors are playing in a round-robin tournament over the next two months, competing for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. You can follow the tournament on the tournament web page here: http://www.williamsportchessclub.org/Website/index.html. Click on the Round # links to see the pairings and results from each round. Note the small “pawn” icon next to individual pairings; clicking on the pawn will display the chess moves from that game.
