RVCC April Quick Online Tournament
1st: Drew Gripp, 3/3
2nd: William Villarreal, 2/3
3rd: Benjamin Dubuque, 2/3
On Wednesday, April 8, the RVCC hosted a tournament online on Chess.com; it was a 3-round Swiss with good turnout (8 players). Time control was G/15. There was fighting chess all around, and some good fun was had. The notable game was Round 2, where Drew Gripp had the white pieces in a Spanish vs. William Villarreal. This game came down to the wire with both players fighting to the end of their clocks. Round 1 featured a fun 8-move win from Benjamin Dubuque, who sacked his queen on move 7 to mate in one.
