Photos from St. Alban's Tournament
These photos come from today's Greater Sacramento Adult/Scholastic Championship, a G/30 tournament hosted by the St. Alban's Country Day School chess club and directed by NTD John McCumiskey (see photo lower right). 92 players of all ages came to Roseville to play chess on a sunny Saturday. Special thanks to the parents of St. Alban's for once again offering a raffle with great prizes plus a full lunch and snack bar (great cookies)!
Since I managed to play like a doofus in the final round, the Open section ended in a five-way tie for first place between Joe Birt, Alvin Pulley, 7th grader Isaac Zhang, Stephen Pulley and Michael Aigner. Give credit to Joe Birt for alertly taking advantage of my careless opening play.
