Fellow BCF Chess players,

The Charles Drafts Memorial is named after a disabled chess player at Harvard University who in the 80s was renowned for inviting players to his house for chess play, food, and drink. I am glad that despite the closing of Alewife Station over the weekend, our attendance at BCF did not suffer. We got together 41 players and had a dominant Open Section of 22 players. Unfortunately we had to combine the U2000 and U1500 Sections this time - the U1500 was too small - but in time we should get enough players to run consistently all three Sections in tandem.

A warm welcome to new BCF Member Lucas Baker who took home the U1500 prize with 2.5 points in the combined Section. He lost only to the U2000 overall champion David Milliern (3.5 points). His rating is up to 1394, so perhaps he won't be U1500 much longer. We are happy to welcome him to our group and hope he will attend many future events.



1st:/2nd (tied): Nathan Solon, Suraj Ramanathan, Akshay Padmanabhan


1st: David Milliern


1st: Lucas Baker

I'll be back again in September for the $15 Open on Sunday 9/16. On the day before, I hope to see many of you at the Harvard Open. See you over the board.
