Toronto Teams Edged Out by Windsor

Eighteen teams compete in KWCC Teams Active Chess Challenge

Saturday June 18, Annex Chess Club sent an A team, a B team, and a Junior team to the KWCC Teams Active Challenge.

Kitchener-Waterloo Chess Club once again hosted this exciting event, which saw 18 teams from regions and chess clubs around Ontario play team-against-team matches, in a one-day, five-round event. Games were played at an “active” time control of game/25 min (+10 s Bronstein delay), so individual results will be CFC active-rated.

Along with the three Annex Chess Club teams, Toronto was also represented by a team from Willowdale Chess Club in North York.

In the end, the team from Windsor took the event, with a perfect 5.0/5. Willowdale CC came second, with 4.0/5, and our Annex A team finished third (tied with Hamilton and Brantford) with 3.5/5. Annex B and Annex Jr. ended in a six-way tie for tenth, with 2.0/5. The full teams cross-table below is from ChessTalk. There is an individual cross-table on the CFC site. There were some errors in the tournament report, so double-check your results and email info@chess.ca if your pairings or results are wrong.
