Preliminary Pairings

Tournament News... ROUND #1: The first round of the 22nd Annual Championship started on Sept. 26th, 2018 at the Rochester Chess Center, NY.  The club took time to remember previous CCCR champions that passed away in the last year: Jim Clague and Doug Spencer.  Door prizes were handed out for several lucky winners, and then the first round started.  Chess books from Doug's personal chess library were included in the door prizes, and continues with more door prizes for coming rounds.  The defending champion, Senior Master Lev Paciorkowski, won his first game of the tournament, by winning his game against Joshua Stevens.  Lev will be making a separate blog  post here covering his games, so keep on the lookout for that and updates as the tournament progresses through all five rounds.

Visitors and Spectators are welcome.  
Senior Master Lev Paciorkowski is the defending club champion.
