♞  "The business of the endgame is maneuvring to control critical squares, advancing or blockading passed pawns, preparing a breakthrough by the king, or
exploiting the subtle superiority of one piece over another." -Pal Benko  ♞

♔ ♛ ♖ Complete Year-End Stats ♝ ♘ ♟

Throughout the year, cumulative statistics are tracked & calculated weekly & at the end of each regular tournament as part of the Wachusett Chess Club Member Rating Spreadsheet. A collection of these weekly spreadsheets is located in the WCC Weekly Statistics Archive. Use of the spreadsheet format for these statistics was initiated in 2005 by Dave Couture assisted by Ken Gurge & others along the way.
For WCC statistics prior to 2005, please refer to the official USCF tournament report crosstables.
Starting with the 2007-2008 season, each season consists of all weekly games up to & including the WCC Club Championship which ends the season.

At the end of each regular season at the club, these statistics are compiled & in some cases assigned award titles consistent with famous chess players who developed reputations over the span of their chess careers for similar accomplishments.
