Finale results posted

The results from Saturday's tournament have been posted. It was a great turnout, featuring Aspen Elementary students just returned from the national elementary champonship in Georgia, and a match between two of our current state champions.

Congratulations to winners Silas Perry, Larry Dunlap, and Zak Naranjo-Morse. Prize money will be mailed tomorrow.

It has been a great pleasure to meet so many chess players this past season, and I look forward to hosting more tournaments beginning late summer or fall.

In the meantime, I encourage everyone to stay tuned to www.nmchess.org and www.wiredkingscc.blogspot.com for all of the great tournaments taking place over the summer.

Thanks,
Rick

Seaon Finale

Dear friends and fellow chess players,

The end of the first season of Santa Fe Rooks tournaments is coming to a close, and we plan to mark it by having a big event.

Saturday, May 15, at Desert Academy, we will be hosting a four round, G/60 tournament with a $500 grand prize for the top section. Depending on the number of entries, we will also have a second section with a $300 grand prize. The entry fee is $25.

This will be a swiss style system, with each section will be composed of 16 players. So, if a player wins all four games, that player will take home the grand prize. If there is no player who wins four games, the prize will be equally divided between the highest scoring players.

We really appreciate all of the support over the past few months, and look forward to continuing to host tournaments in the future.
