ACC Winter is Coming Swiss

Our new club tournament starts November 5. Whether because we’re fans of HBO’s Game of Thrones – now finished its 7th season and also available on Crave, or just because it’s November and we live in Toronto… Winter is indeed coming!

ACC Winter is Coming 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 November 5 to December 10 (off November 12 when ACC is completely closed). New players can register on site each round by 7 pm. Email registration or bye requests before 6pm.

Round One – November 5

Forty players have signed up for Round One. The first round of a Swiss tournament always sees match-ups between favourites and underdogs, and a few underdogs usually defeat their higher-rated opponents.

Tonight, the favourites are dominant, but in U1400, rating underdog Ivan Noritsyn (1019) defeats Alexis Stefanovich-Thompson (1289).

We’re off next week. We’ll see everyone in two weeks for Round Two!
