The Knights Are Better Here!


Chess For Girls

Game Of The Week


This week’s game comes Jason Caldwell and Renae Delaware. I was happy to publish this game as Renae has only given me her wins in the past, and I think she is starting to get a big head. So, I feel it is my job to bring her some humility.

Also, I was watching Saturday Night Live, and I saw a commercial that reminded me of her. The product was called “Chess for Girls.” I think she would like it because she is the only chess player I know who has unicorns and dragon stickers on her chess clock.

However, her chess set is lacking that feminine touch. The “Chess for Girls” set comes with pieces that smell like strawberries, unicorns instead of knights, a queen whose hair you can braid, a king that makes bubbles, bishops that come with swim suits and evening gowns, and a Malibu van for carrying all the pieces. The good thing about this set is that if you miss mate-in-1 twice, you can claim the bubbles got in your eye.

This Week In Chess

Tuesday April 19, 2005


On April 12, the CSCC had 22 members in attendance. In the USCF-rated matches (G90), Brian Wall knocked the socks off of Shaun MacMillan, Richard Cordovano outlasted Tony Telinbacco, Jerry Meier defeated Tom Mullikin, and Mike Davis pummeled Dean Brown.

The rest of the members played in the Eccentric Pairing Swiss Tournament (G15). The goal of the tournament is to be the player with the highest rating gain. Instead of the normal pairing system, the players are paired based on unusual criteria. Round 1 was paired by birth date, round 2 by birthplace, and round 3 by ratings. In the final round, the players were paired in order of their rating gain.
