Round Five – December 9

Last round!

In U1900, it’s Charlie Grisar in clear first with 4.0/5. And his rating goes up over 1700. Way to go, Charlie!

In U1400, it’s Alex Moiseev with a win at 4.0/5. His rating goes up over 1250. Congratulations, Alex!

Finally, in the Crown, Dave Southam takes the tournament with a final score of 4.5/5. Congratulations, Dave!

Unfortunately, despite a clear-first finish, Dave still ends up donating a few points to the club for his efforts. We need to make these tournaments more rewarding for our highest rated players. A few ideas are in the works!

We’ll see many Annex players at Hart House this weekend. Then, on Monday, it’s our Holiday Rapid!
