Round 3 of 5
 

Our best wishes for a speedy recovery from his hospitalization and heart double-bypass surgery go out to longtime club member Wayne Steadman, who unfortunately had to withdraw from the tournament. Many thanks to those who signed Wayne's "Get Well" card at the club.

Anyone desiring to send Wayne personal best wishes can do so by e-mailing Wayne at wayneno978@comcast.net

Our sincerest thanks go out former Wachusett CC members (clockwise from left) Tom Weideman (St. Bernard's), Lee Denis (Leominster High), Chris Coleman (Fitchburg High), Bob Anderson (St. Bernard's), Bryant Hopkins (Leominster High) and Frank Everett (Oakmont Regional) on their surprise visit to the club on Wednesday night. We were overjoyed by their visit and wish them to come again.

The following is from Tom Weideman (who it should be noted is a former Hawaii State Chess Champion).

This is a short chess memoir I wrote several years ago.  It includes 14 games that I consider my most memorable.  While you might find some of them interesting (they all come with the back stories that I think make them interesting), the games that fall squarely into the category of WCC remembrance are #4, #7, and #8.

Hope you like them.  Feel free to post or link to anything you find on that blog.

The Field for the 2014 Wachusett Chess Club Championship is Set

The past 6 years have seen 6 different champions: Marty Laine in 2008, Larry Gladding in 2009, Tony Cesolini in 2010, Robert King in 2011, Trevor Bierig in 2012, and George Mirijanian in 2013.  This year we have a number of new contenders.  Will we have a 7th champion in 7 years?  Stay tuned - here are the contenders:

1) Carissa Yip - At 10 years old, Carissa is by far the youngest participant.  Her accomplishments are already too numerous to mention here, but it must be noted that she is the youngest ever female expert in recorded USCF history, achieving that record at the age of 9.  She is also poised to become the youngest ever female master.  Her current rating is 2137, having increased in each of her last 7 tournaments.  A rating of 2200 is needed to achieve the title of master.  GM Irina Krush currently holds the record for youngest ever female USCF master.  Irina was 12 years old when she did it.  Carissa's record at the club this year was 19 wins, 1 draw, and 0 losses.

2) George Mirijanian - George is the current club champion.  He is another player with accomplishments too numerous to mention.  He has been club champion 16 times, winning his first in 1977.  He held the title of club champion from that first one in 1977 until 1984 - the longest streak in club history.

3) Bruce Felton - 2-time club champion in 2004 and 2005.

4) Steve Nelson - Steve was the club champion in 1976.  After decades away from the board, he returned this season and has shown that he is still tough competitor.

5) Paul Godin - Paul was club champion back in 1967 and has had a successful season, tying for 2nd in the Harlow B. Daly Memorial, tying for 3rd in the GM Lubomir Kavalek Open, and tying for 3rd in the Jonathan Yedidia Open.

6) Mike Lally - Mike comes to us all the way from Leverett, out in "The 4-1-3".  This is Mike's first full year at the club and he's shown his mettle by winning the George Sturgis Memorial by a full point.

7) Gary Brassard - Gary has been runner-up in a previous club championship and is certainly hoping to do one better than that this year.  He tied for 3rd place in both the George Sturgis Memorial and the Reggie Boone Memorial this season.

8) Larry Gladding - Larry has been club champion 3 times, winning his first in 1992 and his most recent in 2009.
