“Club Championship (Sept 29-Oct 29): The annual Portland Chess Club Championship, which is open to all PCC members, takes place in October (sometimes starting in late September as was the case this year) in place of the Tuesday Quads. Mike Morris, PCC life member and longtime board member, won with 4.5/5, gaining around 70 rating points and winning $50. He beat defending champion FM Nick Raptis, who finished 2nd with 4/5, on the last round to take the title. Brian Elser finished 3rd with 3.5/5. Roland Eagles won the $25 U1800 prize with 3/5 and gained around 65 rating points.”
