Congratulations to Life Master Brian Wall for his perfect 4-0 score and earning the title of 2021 Colorado Senior Open Champion.
Brad Lundstrom finished with 3.5 for second place and Josh Samuel came in at third on tiebreaks over Sam Bridle with 3 points.
Our champion earns the right to represent Colorado at the US Open July 31 - August 3, 2021 in Cherry Hill, NJ at the tournament of champions featuring the top senior players from every state in the USA.
Both Brian and Brad declined the invitation so Josh Samuel accepted and will be our Colorado Senior Representative this year - congratulations and good luck Josh!
Our tournament was held at the Arts Center in Manitou Springs and was well directed by Buck Buchanan and Shirley Herman. Thank you to both!
Eighteen players attended this tournament and all were very happy to be playing over the board chess again!
Look for the tournament story, photos and games in our upcoming July issue of the Colorado Informant.
Hope to see you at the Class Championships in Loveland on July 24-25th!
