Avdic takes the 2022 Speed Championships by storm : 14/14

To Say that Huso Avdic “breezed” through the competition on his way to capturing his second consecutive Speed Championship would be an understatement of gigantic proportions. Unscathed in 12 consecutive matches, our Bosnian brother overpowered his opposition as did Gulliver to a host of Lilliputians! Placing second, was Alan Gregg, in an effort to keep himself fresh prior to his upcoming journey to Lansing this next weekend to test his skills in the challenging open section of Michigan Chess Association’s “Bottom-half Class Tournament”!

One of the most striking things to emerge from this year’s event was the remarkable improvement shown by Trenton Klaty who took one scalp from 3 of the four players (including his own brother) who finished above him in the crosstable.  Thanks go to Bill Wingrove who agreed to be our houseman (Player not in the tournament that agrees to play, when each player that has a bye would normally be idle.) Brandon Byrne our lone Sandusky native, made it a point to drop by and play in his first tournament of the year and enjoyed some nice wins as well as welcomed chess camaraderie. This year’s event was both USCF and PHCC rated, permitting entrants to earn rating points at local and national levels.

The November 17th Double Round Robin Action Quads ( See details in the Events Calendar.) will complete the 2022 tournament season.
