Nick Raptis of Portland and Reed Cope of Oregon both had 3-0 scores to top
the 10 player event held March 9. Sean O’Connell was the tournament director. Guess because of the small turnout the quads event was turned into a 3 round swiss. Time control was G/90 d5.

March 18, cialis 40mg
2013. So you should receive your copies in the mail on time or early. The above link is the Formal Mock-up for the issue.

We have great coverage of the 21st Dave Collyer Memorial tournament held in Spokane, find
including three pages by IM John Donaldson.

Due to space considerations, I decided to put all the remaining games from the Oregon Championship (R5-R9) and seven games from the Idaho Championship in the April issue as the second installment of the series of State Championship Games (notes by FM Ralph Dubisch). Then in the May 2013 issue we will present all the Washington Championship games (R5-R9) to conclude our 3-issue feature!

The 32-page issue is packed full of really great material from all three states. It has been a pleasure working on this issue.

March 2013 Mock-up (Page 1)

The March issue of Northwest Chess was completed on February 22, visit this site 2013. The above link is the Formal Mock-up for the issue.

This issue is very special (I guess they all are), as it contains all the games from the State Championships in the first 4 rounds for both WA and OR that were held on the February 9-10 weekend, many with notes by Ralph Dubisch.

I attempted to be very comprehensive in the reporting of the championship games (since they were 10-player round robin events) and plan to continue that to its conclusion in the April issue. Only some of Idaho’s games will appear in the April issue since Idaho’s event was a Swiss System tournament open to everyone in the state which would just be too many games.

The issue is two days later than last month’s issue was, but it is still on time. Of course, I think it’s a great issue!
