ACC First Anniversary Swiss

We’ve named this club Swiss in honour of our one-year anniversary! It’s hard to believe it’s been just a year since we launched Annex Chess Club.

GM Mark Bluvshtein gave an inaugral grandmaster lecture to officially open the club on October 18, 2010. A week later, eight players started our first Fall Swiss – Hugh Siddeley, Daniel Wiebe, Yakos Spiliotopoulos, Marcus Wilker, Shabnam Abbarin, Alex Ferreira, Ian Mahoney, and Lawrence Garcia. And the rest, as they say, is history…

Round 1 (September 12)

In round one of a Swiss, it’s always nice to hope for some big upsets. And indeed there were a couple impressive upsets (rating-wise) in the Reserve B section as Josep Sobrepere and Evnato Frias defeated opponents who out-rated them by 270 and 168 points respectively. In the Open section, there were a couple of impressive draws: up-and-comer (and recent Labour Day U2000 co-winner) Zehn Nasir drew expert Stephen Fairbairn, while expert Rhys Goldstein drew master Rolando Renteria. Finally, the good sportsmanship award for this round has to go to Jack Maguire, in the Reserve A section, who offered the draw (in a probably drawn position) to Zhanna Sametova – when she had only a minute left on her clock.

Monday September 19, we took a break from the tournament, as we were honoured to welcome GM Nigel Short to our club. Check full details about his visit.

Round 2 (September 26)

In the second round, the tournament swelled back to a more normal size. Welcome and welcome back to new and returning players! Currently, IMC John Wright is leading the Premier section, Yakos Spiliotopoulos is leading Reserve A, and there’s a two-way tie between Josep Sobrepere and Evnato Frias in Reserve B. All four leaders have perfect 2.0/2 records.

Round 3 (October 3)

After three rounds, IMC John Wright continues to lead the Premier section with a 3.0/3 record. In Reserve A, leader Yakos Spiliotopoulos took a bye and is now sharing the lead with Hayk Oganesyan. And in Reserve B, Josep Sobrepere defeated rival Evnato Frias to take sole possession of the lead with 3.0/3.

Monday October 10, we took another break from the tournament, as we hosted Thanksgiving weekend tournaments at ACC.

Round 4 (October 17)

With a win over John Wright, Pavel Peev now leads the Premier section with a 3.5/4 record. In Reserve A, only two games were played, while leader Yakos Spiliotopoulos took another bye and continues to lead with 3.0/4. And in Reserve B, Josep Sobrepere continued his perfect streak and is now leading with 4.0/4.

Round 5 results (October 24)

With yet another win, this time over Wajdy Shebetah, Pavel Peev finished in clear first in the Premier section with a 4.5/5 record. In Reserve A, leader Yakos Spiliotopoulos finished clear first with 4.0/5. And in Reserve B, Josep Sobrepere ran his perfect streak through the whole tournament, finishing first with 5.0/5. Congratulations to the tournament winners!
