Grand Prix Leg #2
Grand Prix Leg #2 kicked off on the eve of our 2020 casino fund raiser, attracting 26 players to the event so far. Mateo Jackson of Lethbridge continues measuring his skill against our players by participating via Messenger over the internet. Elsewhere Zeeshan Munir posted the only upset of the round by defeating the much higher rated Alexander Pawelko. In the next round, top seed FM Dale Haessel will meet the experienced Brian Miller.
The Calgary Chess Club is following the lead of many prestigious tournaments worldwide by offering an online event registration system to streamline our services. The benefits are many. With the player start list known ahead of time we are able to email pairings to all registered players 24 hours prior to the start of the event. At the same time, the common and quite unnecessary delays resulting from last minute onsite registrations by a handful of stragglers are largely a thing of the past, as are many of the associated accounting headaches for our staff. We would like to encourage the few remaining players who do not yet take advantage of our pre-registration process to begin using it; if nothing else, your online registration and payment saves $10 per event!
