Gregg makes it three in a row as he captures the Fischer 960 Event:

First it was the July G/30 DRR, then the August Blitz (See August CC for reports on these tournaments) , and now  the Fischer 960 (Also known as Fischer Random) DRR event! Not too shabby for a guy that professes he cannot play fast chess!  Josh Muir salvaged his reputation by tying Bill Wingrove, who finally had to win a game to share 2nd/3rd prize money, edging Noel Bedy who scored 5 points. Since this was the first tournament open to all that wished to play, Rita Luzynski and Lafonce Jackson were initiated into tournament play, and despite having the time control in half for the final two rounds to meet club hours, bothplayed some very interesting chess!

Bravo to all that played, and we are looking forward to having everyone back for the remainder of our tournament schedule.
