Round 2 (December 19)

After two rounds of play, Michael Humphreys is continuing his domination of the top section. After winning the 2011 Fall Swiss with a perfect 5.0/5, record, he’s off to a 2.0/2 start in this club Swiss, too.

Hopefully, Michael continues his winning streak on January 9, when he plays board 1 for ACC in the first match of the GTCL Premier League season!

In the Reserve A section, there’s a five-way tie for the lead: Zaki Uddin, Zehn Nasir, Nick O’Bumsawin, Edmond Jodhi, and Danny Zotkin all have 1.5/2. They’re all strong contenders, and it’s anyone’s guess who’ll come out on top in the next three rounds.

Meanwhile, in Reserve B, the father-and-daughter combination of Hooshang Abbarin and Shabnam Abbarin are tearing it up with 2.0/2 records. They are currently in a two-way tie for the lead.

Finally, special thanks to Alex Ferreira, who filled in for our regular TD, Hugh Siddeley. Only Alex can re-pair a section by hand – and take care of a finicky printer – while simultaneously entertaining the crowd with chess stories from the good old days!

Round 4 (January 16)

With the GTCL Premier League under way, the Premier section has been decimated – Michael Humphreys, Rolando Renteria, and David Southam have dropped out to play the top boards for the ACC team. Pavel Peev (who took a round off himself to play for the ACC team) is leading what remains of the section with 3.0/4.

In the super-competitive Reserve A section, Nick O’Bumsawin, is leading with 3.0/4 – but there are five hungry hounds chomping at his heels, half a point behind. Nick can take clear first with a win next round. Otherwise we’re liable to end up with a tie at the top of this section.

In the Reserve B section, Hooshang Abbarin is leading with a perfect score of 4.0/4. The question is, will he be ready to face his daughter Shabnam Abbarin (currently tied for second at 3.0/4) in the last round?
