Kids’ Chess-for-Points Results

Things are changing in our children’s programme. We’re taking a break from CFC-rated tournaments, and working to sharpen the skills of our young players with group lessons, individual problem solving, and chess-for-points play – where players earn points for achieving specific objectives in their games, solving checkmate riddles, etc.

Yakos Spiliotopoulos, who teaches chess in schools with Ted Winick’s Chess Institute, is spearheading this change. He and the kids have a great time every Monday night. Yakos says they’re one of the strongest groups he’s ever worked with. And our parents have been full of praise for the new programme. Yakos is away in July and August, but the lesson structure he has been using will continue through the summer with other Chess Institute instructors filling in.

Come on out to our children’s chess training sessions Monday nights from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, and join this elite crew of talented young players. Youth teaching assistants, Liza Orlova, Assaf Bar-Natan, and David Tang, are on hand to provide individual help. Email the club for more information.

Here is the cumulative points leaderboard to Monday June 27.

Rolando Renteria takes ACC Rapid

ACC Rapid Championship, May 16 2011

Five rounds of 15-minute speed chess on Monday night ended with a perfect result for new ACC member, Rolando Renteria, from Colombia. (Arguably, he was helped out by Dan Wiebe, who upset the top two seeds, Natalia Khoudgarian and Wajdy Shebetah, so Rolando didn’t face them. But don’t be fooled by Rolando’s provisional CFC rating; he’s 2175 FIDE.) There was a four-way tie for second place, with Josh Sherman and Hugh Siddeley taking second and third on tie-break.

Here are the complete results:
