Round 3 TCCC Championship

Round 3 of the Twin City Chess Club Championship for 2011 was played on February 7, 2011, after being postponed on January 31st due to weather and attendance.  Sixteen players were present.  There is one pending prior request for a make-up game due to inability to attend.

Joe Alford continues a perfect record with 3.0 / 3.0.  However, seven more players have a 2.0 / 3.0 score and are right on Joe’s heels.  With the “worst result dropped” system, we are still looking at fierce competition for the overall prize.

One player rated Under 1200, Nikhil Pallem, is one of those seven with 2.0 / 3.0 score so far, and leads that trophy category at the moment.  But six more players Under 1200 to unrated are sitting with a 1.0 score.  Again, anything can still happen for the Under trophy.

The same is true of the Scholastic (Under 18) trophy.  Nikhil and Hanson Hao are in the lead for  that trophy at the moment, but there are many other players who can still contend for that prize.

Play continues next week on February 14th, 2011.  We hope to see you there!

All tournament links are now available here, including links to unannotated games.   Games annotated by Joe Alford will be available shortly.

Tournament crosstable follows the cut.

Please note:  With the tournament rules dropping the worst result of the six
rounds played it is not possible to calculate actual interim standings
accurately.  This crosstable is ranked by total points in tournament to date,
and then scored by rating.

These results are pending one request for a make up game, requested prior to
the beginning of round 3.
