REPORT ON 2018 CONNECTICUT YANKEE OPEN

Nelson Castaneda of New Britain won clear first of the 2018 Connecticut Yankee Open chess tournament.

Nelson is a FIDE chess master, and a math professor at Central Conn. State Univ.

Joe Bihlmeyer, of Durham, won 2nd place. Joe, a national expert, conducts chess classes at New Britain Chess Club.

Special thanks to the OTIS LIBRARY CHESS CLUB IN NORWICH, from which we got six entrants.

Special thanks to the NEW BRITAIN CHESS CLUB from which we got four entrants.  Two players came down from Massachusetts, and two came over from Rhode Island.

Special thanks to Nelson Castaneda for his donation of $40, without which we would not have covered all of our expenses.

Thanks to everyone for chipping in with all the work. Special mention goes to Suhas Kodali for lugging all my stuff back to my car.  Lonnie Dixon helped with clean up.

Al Lasser took photos. Al also writes our GAME OF THE WEEK column for CONNECTICUT CHESS MAGAZINE.

We thank Wendy Rubin, Coventry parks and rec. director, and John Elsesser, the Coventry town manager. We all had fun at this new Mill Brook Place. Each of our players raved about how great a place it is.

THE 2018 NUTMEG STATE OPEN is our next meet on Sat., August 11. It is more than a mere chess tournament, but it is also an OPEN HOUSE for new chess players, where anybody can attend for free.

We now have plenty of extra room, so please come and "check" us out. No age restrictions. Info => ConnecticutChess@Gmail.com
