Jack Frost Chess Tournament Results

As part of its series of special, one-day, unrated tournaments, the Roanoke Valley Chess Club recently held its JACK FROST CHESS TOURNAMENT. This tournament was held on Saturday, February 14, 2015 in the Community Room of the Roanoke Natural Foods Co-Op in Roanoke, Virginia. The tournament was a three round-Swiss event, with 90% of entries being returned as prizes ! The time control was Game in 30.

There was plenty of excitement and drama in all of the games. Going into the final round there was a three way tie for first place.

Clear 1st place went to Ansel Steele who had a perfect 3-0 performance. Gary Myers, Sam Kennedy, Om Patel, Harry Patel, Mark Tenzer, and Wally Lewis shared 2nd and 3rd place prizes. Congratulations to all of the prize winners ! The on-site Tournament Director was Ray Megginson. There were no significant problems of any kind and everyone appeared to have a really good time!

The Roanoke Valley Chess Club sincerely appreciates everyone who participated and made this Saturday Special event at the Co-Op yet another successful one in our series.

We also express our deep appreciation to the management and staff of the Co-Op, who have gone out of their way to make us feel especially welcome there for our weekly Saturday Club meetings.
