Another good turnout Thursday. We had 8 participants in the USCF-rated Quick tournament, several players participating in slow casual chess, and a few impromptu blitz games before and after the tournament.
The Winston-Salem Chess Club currently holds 7-round blitz (G/5;d0) and 3-round quick (G/15;d3) on the first Thursday (blitz) and third Thursday of each month. Entry fee is only $1. Entrants must be current USCF members. All tournaments are USCF-rated. Players are asked bring a tournament-class set and clock if available.
Elias Oussedik won the second monthly Winston-Salem Chess Club Blitz tournament On August 4 with a perfect seven-win performance. Here is a link to the crosstable.
Mr. Oussedik went on to win the Greensboro Open that weekend. Here is his Round 3 game (courtesy of Chess Stream): Hint: Click on the first move to play the game from the beinning. Click on any move to show the position at that point.
