Hauptturnier and Patzerturnier, 2011

Concurrent with the BCF Championship, the BCF Hauptturnier begins on Monday, September 12.

BCF Championship and Hauptturnier - September 12, 19, 26, October 3, 10, 17, 24, November 7, 14
Games start at 7:00 PM. Also, some Thursdays for make-up games: September 22 & 29, October 20 & 27, November 3. Time Control: RR/30/90 G/45.

The Hauptturnier I believe was initiated by Bob Fuhro to provide a challenging event for the best club players who hadn't qualified for the Championship.

After extensive discussion the board voted to limit the Hauptturnier to the 10 highest rated players who register.

There is a signup sheet posted in the club - if you are interested please sign up and give your phone number and email address. If you can't make it to the club, you can email or

If more than 10 players register, the lower rated players will play in a Swiss or Round Robin. Alex Cherniack and Bill Kelleher suggested the corresponding tournament would be for, ... what's the German word?... for patzers. So, if there is sufficient interest, we will sponsor the 2nd annual Patzerturnier.

Last year we had 10 in the Hauptturnier and 9 in the Patzerturnier.
