Van Dyke sweeps Seattle Club Championship with perfect score

Congratulations to Patrick Van Dyke for dominating the annual Seattle Chess Club Championship, winning with a perfect 7-0 score, while second place (Fred Kleist and Michael James Hosford) was 2.5 points behind with 4.5 of 7. The 17-player event was held on Friday evenings in September and October at the club. Despite his perfect score, Van Dyke only gained 22 rating points (2141 to 2163) due to his initial high rating and the lower ratings of all his opponents. See the USCF crosstable.
