By Abby Marshall: Kudos as always to MonRoi for broadcasting the games and making it possible for everyone to know the results live. I guess I switched to writing hieroglyphics in the middle of my notation so I can’t read half my moves, but thanks to MonRoi I now have the complete score. Yay! I’m definitely not going to be the last girl to win. There are many young players who are stronger than I was at their age. I have no doubt this is just the first step in American chess for women reaching equality with men. I’m excited about that. Read more

2009 CANADIAN OPEN CHESS CHAMPIONSHIP- THANK YOU NOTES PDF Print E-mail
Written by MonRoi Support on Tue, Jul 21 2009 (03:10)

 

MonRoi is delighted with the positive feedback received after the 2009 Canadian Open Chess Tournament, which was held in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. We thank the Canadian chess community and chess fans worldwide for their continued support. Below are a few comments from Chess Talk. 

 

Alex Ferreira

Big Thanks to CO Organizers !

I played in this past Canadian Open and had an absolutely fantastic time. Definitely the best Canadian Open I've been at (2006-2009) so far. Everyone I had talked to about the 2005 CO, also held in Edmonton, said it had been an outstanding CO and that 2009 was not to be missed. They were right!

A big thanks to Micah Hughey and Vlad Rekhson, along with their team, who put on a fantastic show, and were always very helpful and professional. Everyone who I hanged out with seemed to have been having a terrific time overall, even if the chess results at times proved disappointing (got ourselves to blame really).

The website was easy to navigate, complete with results and pairings for the next round, always posted about one hour after the last game of the night was finished. Always great to have (and use!) monroi to record games and to view them afterward from home. Coverage was excellent with chessbase and terrific to have Shabalov annotate some of the top board games.

Chess Quotes


And for the chess-player the success which crowns his work, the great dispeller of sorrows, is named "combination."
