The 2013 Metrowest Chess Club Championship was a hard fought event... a no-holds-barred slugfest that wasn't decided until the last round. Congratulations to our two co-champions, IM James Rizzitano and IM Jonathan Yedidia, both of whom scored 3.5/5. Honorable mention to round 4 leader, NM Vadim Martirosov, who fell to IM Yedidia, finishing tied for 3-4, with NM Mika A.Brattain at 3/5. Of course, there is no honor in losing... but, I wanted to make him feel good. Finishing 5th was NM Ilya Krasik at 2/5 and last was NM Lawyer Times with no points and a lot of bruises for his trouble.
I included all but two of the games below. (if anybody has them, send them to me and I'll add them) We should all go over them carefully... who knows when we will face one of these guys. Some of the games are annotated just to irritate the participants. And I hope you all will add your comments and questions. Let's turn this blog into a real learning tool... and say very nasty things about all the stupid moves our club champions made.
Hope you enjoy...
