Annex Spring Fling

Annex Spring

Spring is here in the Annex. The bicycles are back on the street (not that cycling season ever ends for some), the flowers are blooming, the Hot Docs festival is under way, and Annex Chess Club is launching our 2013 Spring Fling chess tournament starting April 15.

New sections

With many of our top players playing in the Toronto Closed, we’re lowering the section rating cut-offs by 100 points to even out the sections. The top section is now designated as over-1800 CFC (with players over 1700 admitted by request), the middle section is 1400 to 1799 (with players over 1300 allowed to join), and the bottom section is under-1400. Previously, section cut-offs had been 1900 and 1500, with a similar 100-point grey zone.

Round One – April 15

We’re off to a great start. Even with the Toronto Closed running and borrowing several of our top players, we still have 38 players in the club Swiss.

Round Two – April 22

After two rounds of play, Bill Evans is leading the Crown section, with 2.0/2. In the U1800 section, there’s a three-way tie for first among Josep Sobrepere, Jack Maguire, and Adrian Chin, all with 2.0/2. There’s a three-tie in the U1400 section, too, with Ian Prittie, Bradley Yee, and Richard Morrisson sharing first place, all with 2.0/2.

Adrian and Richard are new to the club, and evidently off to a good start. Welcome to all our new members!

Round Three – April 29

With another win, this time over Daniel Sirkovich, Bill Evans is still leading the Crown section, with 3.0/3. In the U1800 section, it’s down to a two-way tie for first between Jack Maguire and Adrian Chin, both with 3.0/3. Finally, Bradley Yee is now in clear first in the U1400 section, with 3.0/3.

Round Four – May 6

Every section now has a clear leader. In the Crown section, Tyler Longo has taken over the top spot with a win over Bill Evans. Tyler now has 3.5/4. In the U1800 section, Adrian Chin has taken sole possession of first place with a win over Jack Maguire. Adrian is still perfect with 4.0/4. And in the U1400 section, Bradley Yee continues to dominate, now standing at 4.0/4.

Round Five – May 13

While the Leafs lost a heartbreaker in Boston, we held the final round of our Spring Fling. In the Crown section, Tyler Longo took a zero-point bye, but still had sufficient points to take first with 3.5/5 after Hayk Ogenesyan beat Bill Evans to finish with 3.0/5 each. In the U1800 section, Adrian Chin drew his rival Hooshang Abbarin to take first with 4.5/5. Hooshang finishes half a point behind with 4.0/5. Finally, in the U1400 section, Bradley Yee drew Jean-Marc David to finish a point ahead with 4.5/5. Congratulations to all the winners!

Full standings are below.
