One of the premier club tournaments was held over October and early November, 5 rounds of G/90 + 5d to determine the Vassar-Chadwick club champion.
Twenty-one players battled it out over the course of 5 weeks, and when the dust had settled two players found themselves at the top of the hill with 4 points – Mark Courtney and Trevor Brooks.
But tournament chess is a harsh mistress and friendly ties is not part of her domain. Although Trevor defeated Mark in their head-to-head matchup, Mark played all 5 rounds (while Trevor took a bye in round 3) and due to the tiebreak factors ended up on top.
Congratulations to the 2019 Vassar-Chadwick Club Champion, Mark Courtney!
