ACC Relax and Unwind Swiss

August is a great time to relax and unwind. Chess can be a stressful game, but the opportunity to completely focus on the flow (and stress) of the game, while setting everything else aside, can also be very relaxing.

ACC Relax and Unwind Swiss is a five-round CFC-rated tournament in three sections, Crown, U1800, and U1400. Time control is 90 min/side with a 30-s increment. The round starts at 7:30 pm on Monday nights July 30 to September 10. (Off August 6 for Simcoe Day and September 3 for Labour Day.) New players can register on site each round by 7 pm. Email registration or bye requests before 6pm.

Round One – July 30

In Round One U1400 action, Carina d’Souza gets her first draw since joining the club, sacking a rook to get a perpetual. Way to go, Carina! In U1800, unrated Josh Scott scores his first victory in an official game. And in the Crown, the last game of the night is a tough match between David Cohen and Josh Guo.
