Thematic Tournament Report-- The Halloween Gambit

On Wednesday, October 31, 2018, the RVCC held a Halloween Gambit rapid tournament. Eight players competed in a 4-round G/10 event at RVCC headquarters, Raleigh Court Public Library.

Drew Gripp won clear 1st place with a perfect 4.0 score. Christian Dotson was 2nd with a 3.0 score. Ben Dubuque came in at 3rd place with 2.5. Isaac Spence rounded out the top 4 with a solid 2.0 score.

Ben travelled almost 45 miles from Radford to direct and play in this tournament, which ran very smoothly. Ben also brought apple cider, candy, and Doritos from Food Lion. The library staff also gave us some delicious chicken pot pies and other food left over from feeding the high school kids that afternoon. Thank you, Lindy and Audrey!

As always, the RVCC appreciates the Raleigh Court Public Library, for hosting our weekly club meetings and speed tournaments.
