Colorado Class Championships 2021 - Final Results

Our Colorado Class Championships held July 24-25 in Loveland was well attended with 63 players.

Included were 20 new-unrated players that joined US Chess and the CSCA!

We did not have a class D section due to lack of players at that rating.

The Master - Expert tournament was won by Daniel Herman with an impressive 4-0 score... congratulations!

Our state and state co-champions from each class are shown with the final results below -- congratulations to all!

An excellent job by our TD Tom Nelson... thank you sir! 

It was wonderful to get back to regular in person tournament chess!

See you at the Colorado Open!

Brad Lundstrom

CSCA President

FIDE Master Sunil Weeramantry - Chess Olympian, former NY state champion and stepfather of Hikaru Nakamura is visiting Denver to meet our Colorado chess community!

I am happy to announce the Parker Chess club will reopen this Monday July 5. Our new weekly schedule will be each Monday from 6-8pm. These changes are due to availability of rooms and new library hours. A special guest, Sunil Weeramantry, will be visiting the Parker Chess club on Monday July 19 from 6-8pm for meeting and casual play. For those who closely follow chess, Sunil needs no introduction. His accolades in chess are too many to name here. As the Executive Director of the National Scholastic Chess Foundation for over 40 years, he has seen many teams and individuals go on to National titles in chess. A great honor to have him at our club. We will have a very large room reserved for his visit at the Parker library. All are welcome.

Regards,

John Brezina

Congratulations to Lior Lapid for being selected to receive the 2021 U.S. Chess Outstanding Team Achievement Award

Lior recently received some exciting news from the United States Chess Federation. He has been selected to receive this year's U.S. Chess Outstanding Team Achievement Award for his work with Team USA in the 2020 FIDE Olympiad for People with Disabilities.

Lior won the US Chess Outstanding Team Achievement award for coaching Team USA to a top ten finish in the first Online FIDE Olympiad for People with Disabilities. Kevin McConnell shared that Lior did this on a strictly volunteer basis and was a critical component of the team performing as well as they did. He also gave multiple free private lessons to any of the Team USA competitors that wanted to take advantage of this extra tutoring!  Sharing this wonderful letter on his national recognition below...

Congratulations Lior and thank you for being an amazing example as a chess coach and person!

Colorado Chess is very proud of you!!

Brad Lundstrom

CSCA President 

 

Dear Mr. Lapid,

Congratulations from the US Chess Federation (US Chess). You have been selected to receive the 2021 Outstanding Team Achievement Award as coach of the US Team participating in the FIDE Online Olympiad for People with Disabilities. The award is in recognition of your team’s exceptional performance in that event. We would love for you to attend our annual Awards Ceremony on Friday, August 6, 2021 at 4:00 PM in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. We will contact you with the specific room when that information becomes available. We are happy to announce that changing the format of the ceremony from a luncheon to a reception allows anyone to come and watch you receive your award. There is no need to purchase tickets. Please confirm your ability to attend, or the name of your designated representative, and the number of people you expect to accompany you by using this Google form (https://forms.gle/VTRy9ctKk68vaa4b9) or by contacting Jennifer Pearson at governance@uschess.org or (931) 787-3425 by July 19, 2021. If you are unable to attend or arrange for someone to receive your award at the reception, we are happy to mail it to you. Because the Awards Ceremony is held in conjunction with the 122 nd U.S. Open and annual meetings of US Chess, we recommend that you make your travel arrangements as soon as possible. Your many contributions to chess are greatly appreciated. I look forward to seeing you in Cherry Hill and celebrating this well-deserved award.

Sincerely, Carol Meyer Executive Director 

Jessica Lauer is a chess champion and she is blind...CNN

I'm sharing some wonderful communication here that I was copied on today.

Thanks to Ann Davies for this amazing and inspiring story and and Lior Lapid for another insight of his extraordinary adventures in the world of chess!

Brad

FYI....This article also mentions Lior and the chess competition for folks with disabilities that he was involved with.

Thank you for forwarding this article!  I hadn't seen it yet.  In my interview, I also spent a lot of time talking about the other players on the team, hoping that they would all be included or at least mentioned in the story, but it's still wonderful to see Jessica Lauser featured here.  She was living in poverty and struggling so much prior to the Olympiad, and the positive publicity she has received through the New York Times, CNN, and other media outlets has been truly life changing for her.Ann,

Josh Samuel featured in Dillon newspaper as our Colorado senior representative at the 2021 U.S. Open

Josh Samuel will be our Colorado Senior Representative at the U.S. Open this year - congratulations and good luck Josh!

A local newspaper story about Josh was great to see earlier this week.

Dillon local to represent state at national senior chess championship

SUMMITDAILY.COM

Dillon local to represent state at national senior chess championship

Fans of the popular Netflix miniseries “The Queen’s Gambit” in recent months have been provided with a portal into the abstract world of the game of chess. It’s a world Josh Samuel of Dillon knows...

It is an interesting coincidence that the top three finishers; Brian, Brad and Josh shared three things, all are age 65, all graduated high school in 1973 and all have been playing rated tournament chess in Colorado well over fifty years. Here's wishing Josh good luck and safe travels!
