This tournament is dedicated to National Master Imre Barlay who will be 88 years old on 8/8. That is the reason to call the tournament 8888 Birthday Celebration for Imre Barlay. Imre rose above 2400 USCF rating some 35 years ago and is well known in Colorado and California. Imre, imigrated to the US from Hungary and has known GM's such as Pal Benko and Laszlo Szabo. Imre had been Benko's teammate in the 1954 Hungarian team finals that their team won and Imre was the highest scorer. He also had analyzed a lot with Benko and some with Szabo. Imre is very passionate about chess and still plays and studies every day. Come celebrate Imre's coming 88th Birthday at the brand new chess center, Club Chess!!, right here in Colorado Springs . We will have cake before starting Round 4 and honor one of the best chess players in Colorado Springs.
