Decmber 12 results

Thanks to everyone for playing in the second Santa Fe Rooks tournament yesterday. We had six players who won both games in their match, and will be sharing in the $120 prize money. Checks will be mailed tomorrow.
The results were posted last night and now appear at uschess.org.

The next tournament is January 16 at Desert Academy. The format is G/45 with 5 second delay. It will be dual rated (quick and regular), and we will use regular ratings to determine pairings. It will be 6 person round robin.

Please register ahead of time if at all possible. Also, it is important that everyone arrive by 8:45 so we can finalize the pairings and start on time.

final preregistration for tomorrow

Here is the list of those preregistered for tomorrow's tournament. We can still accept registrations between 8:15 and 8:45 in the morning. Please arrive by 8:45 even if you preregistered so that the pairings can be ready and the first round can begin at 9:00.

Same location- Desert Academy at 313 Camino Alire, between Alameda and Agua Fria one half mile west of St Francis. Thanks again to the school for donating the space.

The list below contains updated ratings. As I mentioned before the November tournament, we will be using the most up to date ratings found at the uschess.org website, under 'tournament history' on a player's page.

The format is two person match play, G/100 with 5 second delay. First round is at 9:00, second round at 1:15. Prize money will be divided between all players with two wins. Good luck!

Tournament Saturday December 12

There is still space available for this Saturday's tournament at Desert Academy in Santa Fe. We will waive the late fee if you let us know you plan on playing by 6:00 Friday. Onsite entries will be available between 8:15 and 8:45. Round one begins at 9:00 AM. Format is match play, G/100 with 5 second delay.

So far, the following players have registered. Please note, these ratings are subject to change based on last weekend's tournament results being posted (so, don't pull an all nighter studying your potential opponent's past games and then complain if you play someone else!) For an added variable, I will only play if there are an even number of players, but will not play if there are an odd number.

See you Saturday!
