RAC Team Season Ending Meeting June-7-2013

Gallery
(Camera and gallery labels from Attila Balla; Pictures by Michael Yip and team)

Our last team meeting consisted of a blitz tournament and awards ceremony with refreshments. Our top team finished 6th in Division I while our second team earned a promotion from Division III to Division II. 

In the Monday evening league play, RAC was equal first after tying the final match 3-3.

I managed to take third in the blitz with a bit of luck. My haul for the season was two medals and a gift certificate for 3,000HUF for being the top scorer on the team with 8/11.

As usual, the season had ups and downs but the year turned out well as I continue to enjoy the world on Hungarian chess.

For More Tournament Information

The secret to Hungarian chess is knowing where to find the tournament information-it’s not so obvious. Then know the market prices to find the bargains.
