Kenilworth Chess Club Championship Starts
The 21st Annual Kenilworth Chess Club Championship tournament starts tonight -- see the Calendar or The Chess Coroner for details. Games from the 2005, 2006, and 2007 championships are collected online, and I'm sure more recent ones are online too. In his history of the club, Mike Wojcio tells how important the championship has been as an institution that has helped to keep the club going for over two decades. Mike is a bit of an institution himself, but (unless he suddenly comes back from Hawaii) this will be the first club championship without him. I'm sure he is enjoying himself. I will be playing in the championship myself, especially since the five round and unrated format make it a great opportunity to shake off some rust in preparation for the US Amateur Teams.
