Game Of The Week


This week's game comes from the Colorado Springs Chess Club's August Swiss 90 event.  Both Mark McGough & Chris Motley finished their final round pairings quickly.  So, they decided to face off against each other for the 11th time this year.  The match-up is fairly close, with Chris holding a slight edge (+5-4=2).


The McGough & Motley match-up is also battling for the prize of top contributor to the CSCN website for 2019.  Prior to this game, they were tied with 4 published games each and 2 wins each.  This game would settle, once-and-for-all, who is the best contributor for 2019.


Of course, while there can only be one top contributor, it is still a great honor to just be on the list.  I thank all the chess players who created the games that helped make this newsletter such a success for 2019.  And my apologies to anyone who had only losses published.  Better luck in 2020!
