  • DCC November 2021 Report

    One such player, looking out over the crowded room, remarked to me, "I didn't expect anything like this."

    I was hoping I would never have to type C.O.V.I.D. in one of these DCC tournament reports ever again. Wishful thinking that was. Apparently, a DCC Tuesday night player tested positive after round 4. The only reason we know about the positive test is another player received an "Exposure notification" on his phone and contacted TD Brian Ledswoth to let him... Read more >>

  • DCC November 1-day Tournament Report

    ... and not just the fame and world-wide recognition they receive by being mentioned in these reports :-)

    61 players registered for the most recent DCC 1-day tournament at the Embassy Suites hotel. A good turn-out despite the city of Denver mask mandate being enforced by the hotel and the DCC. More on the latest COVID problem will be in the DCC November Tuesday night report that will be posted within a few days. Andrew Starr is proving to be a proficient Tournament Director. Once...

  • DCC October 2021 Report

    Proving once again that no player can be taken for granted.

    Tuesday night attendance continues to average 60 or more tournament players each week. This month we had more players for the last round than we did for the first round. Which indicates players are playing each week regardless of their score or chance of winning prize money. This further indicates to me that the DCC is providing what chess players want. The sections are competitive and... Read more >>

  • DCC 2021 Fall Classic

    "I play chess and I know things"

    One of the best things about Dean Clow's caissachess software  is the easy access to statistics dating back to January of 2015 for all DCC tournaments. Based on over 70 players registering for our one-day Almost Normal tournament in July, we sort of expected a larger turnout for this traditional 2 day, 5 round, longer time control tournament. The 62 player sign up was certainly not bad,... Read more >>

  • DCC September 2021 Report

    ... and a good feeling about their experience of playing real live over the board tournament chess...

    What I like most about the reopened Denver Chess Club is the consistency of the attendance. All the new players we are seeing are showing up week after week. Borne out by the fact that we have had over 60 tournament players each week - in addition to several casual players - for eight straight weeks, and nobody is complaining about anything. So for the lead off to this report I'll do the... Read more >>
