My 2008 New England Masters Experience

www.USMilitaryChess.org

 

I participated in the 2008 New England Masters held August 11-15, 2008 in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. While it was a 9-round Swiss tournament (USCF and FIDE rated), the field was limited to 50 entrants. However, only 44 players (4 GMS, 8 IMs, 11 FMs and 1 WFM) representing 12 Federations showed up on game day. In the end, only two players earned IM norms, Victor Kaminski of Canada and Parker Zhao of the US.

TEXAS CHESS ASSOCIATION MEETING PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alexey W. Root on Sun, Aug 31 2008 (10:12)

I attended the Texas Chess Association business meeting this morning. The TCA meeting was at 10 a.m., before the 12:30 fourth round of the Southwest Open. After the election results were reported, the four new board members took their places: President Clemente Rendon, Vice President Lakshmana Viswanath “Vish,” Treasurer Barbara Swafford, and Secretary Robert Sturgeon. Luis Salinas had several motions, mostly bids for upcoming events and recognition and stipends for Texas scholastic players in international events. Bids were accepted, recognition passed, and stipend requests were referred to the TCA board. Clemente Rendon made a motion for the Texas Knights editor's salary to rise from $300 to $400 per issue. That motion passed. Most of the rest of the meeting was discussion. Around 10 people, in addition to the four-person board, attended.

 
CHESS AND MARCHING BAND PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alexey W. Root on Sat, Aug 30 2008 (11:34)
Friday night was the first football game of the season for Denton HS, and therefore also the first outing for the marching band. My daughter Clarissa is Marching Officer for the trombones. She pointed out that there are at least two similarities between marching and algebraic notation. First, marchers find their spots on the field by a combination of file-first, then rank. Second, marchers are identified by letter and number. Unlike chess, though, the letter and number stay with the marcher throughout. Clarissa is b1, and the other four trombones are b2-b5. More chess and band connections: At the last band party, chess and scrabble (and some video games) were played.

Chess Quotes


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