CCCR Results for Wednesday September 13 2017

Late result: David Stearns defeated Chris King.

It was a great evening, and a lot of excitement spilling over from Lev Paciorkowski's earlier lecture and presentation, which unfortunately I missed. A number of people who were there said it was very interesting: Lev went over his games in the recent New York State Championship at Albany.

Those of us who missed Part I still have a chance to see Part II on Wednesday, September 27 at 5:00 pm.

Other announcements: The Rawle Farley Memorial Summer League is winding down and it's time to sign up for the Fall League. There are seven sign-ups so far. Also the CCCR Championship begins October 4.

Today's great chess find is from the Pittsford Central Library

You can do the math but I just like saying it so much: that's only $2.50 for some nice books (one or two are arguable). They're in great shape, too; pretty sure they haven't been read.

I'm especially looking forward to the Andy Soltis book. I enjoy playing defense almost as much as I like to attack. Of course when you make a lot of errors you have to get used to defending.
