Billerica Chess Club Tournaments

The Billerica Chess Club has been & continues to be an important chess venue in Massachusetts, however they don't have a web site of their own just yet, so I'll be posting weekly updates on rated tournaments at the Billerica Chess Club here for reference & research purposes.

December 30th, 2016

We played the "Happy New Year Blitz Night" at the Billerica Chess Club turned as a 14-game double round-robin tournament. Each player played once as White and once as Black against every other player.
*WINNERS:
1st place: Smith
2nd place: Bromley
3rd place: Vaughan

The players thought this was a lot of fun and a nice change of pace. Perhaps we'll do it again someday.
Next Friday is back to classical time controls (G/90; d5) for the first round of the January Swiss.
Four rounds on January 6, 13, 20 and 27.

A total of 8 players competed in the event, which was directed by Jeff Caruso of the Billerica Chess Club.

There was a power failure in Billerica Center Friday night, September 9th,
but National Grid estimated that the work would be done by 8:00, so we stuck around.
Then they updated it to 10:00 and I decided to call it a night.

No games the next two weeks (September 16 and 23) so I will decide in the next few days what to do about September 30.
(I think we'll fold it into the October tournament and make that a 5-rounder, but I need to consult with Art. I will let you know soon.)

Round 2 of 4

Ananth Rangan Leads Billerica July Swiss After 2 Rounds

As a result of his 281 point upset win over Jeff Caruso combined with three draws at boards 1, 2, & 3, Class B rated, Ananth Rangan, has jumped out in front as the sole leader after two rounds of play in the Billerica July Swiss. Of the ten players following Rangan with a piont & a half each, seven are USCF rated Experts or Class A players, so with two more rounds to go, there is still a chance someone may catch Ananth. However each win, will move him closer to unstoppable.
