Reubens Landey 2009

As you can tell from the comments, this is a very special tournament - it is highly competitive for expert and A players under very good playing conditions - a slow time control, one game/ evening, and a five week event.

In reviewing our membership and playing list over the last year, I noticed that there are about 220 expert and A players who are eligible for this event. Please consider playing - starting tomorrow, Monday, July 13.

If you are rated 1800+ but U2200, you are invited to play in a terrific five round Swiss - the Reubens Landey.
It is a traditionally a very competitive yet friendly tournament. Only club members can enter, but if you aren't a member, this is the perfect excuse to join.
The 2009 Reubens Landey begins Monday, July 13. It is the second component of the club championship cycle. The winner becomes the BCC U2200 champion and moves into the club championship to compete against club masters.

Monday, July 13, 20, 27 August 3, 10: Reubens/Landey BCC Qualifier U2200 Championship 5SS; 40/90 G/20; Open to BCC members rated between 1800 and 2199; Entry fee: $20: Winner receives free entry into the BCF Championship beginning on 9/14. Registration: 6:15 to 6:55; Rounds: 7:PM

Simon Warfield won the 2008 BCC U2200 championship - the Reubens Landey with 4 of 5 points.. Ben Goldberg and Carey Theil tied for second with 3.5 of 5. Simon was invited into the 2008 BCC club championship to play against the club masters.
