Alberta Over/Under 1800
The 2019 ACA sponsored Alberta Over/Under 1800 featured the standard two section format and, as usual, produced a good number of fighting games. Steve Sklenka kept the event running smoothly, while Dale Haessel produced the pairings and distributed the prizes. The winner of the Over 1800 section was FM Ian Findlay from Banff, Alberta. Tied for second were Edmonton's Ralph Arruebarrena and David Miller. FM Dale Haessel's lukewarm recent form continued as he unexpectedly lost a total of three games.
In the Under 1800 section Frank Knoll was the leader going into the last round. Unfortunately for Frank, he lost his last game to Jose Luis Bruna, the eventual winner. Frank's performance however was good enough for a share of second place with Arthur Milne, who has probably played more games than anyone else at the Calgary Chess Club. Plenty of complimentary refreshments and no major mishaps made the tournament a pleasant weekend event!
