Almost 1900 (1890)

I finished with 4.5 / 5.0 in the double round quad. I won the quad with game in hand. The last game (me vs Garvin) will not be played.

1890 STANLEY T GARVIN 3.0 / 5.0
1852 Me 4.5 / 5.0
1813 ARLEN P WALKER 3.5 / 6.0
1697 JOSEPH H HETZEL 0.0 / 6.0

Rating gain 1851 - 1890

Since my next tournament won't will be till the 44th Northeastern Open , January 26-27, my February rating of 1890 will be a personal best.

I have scored 7-0=1 in my last 8 games at the Waukesha Chess Club.


  1. Good going Ivan. Keep at it. Tom

  2. Thanks Tom,

    Were there more upsets yesterday?
    I heard that there were lots of upsets in the first round.

  3. Looks like you're catching up , Ivan. Good job!

    We are both just about halfway to our goals.

  4. Thanks Tony,

    What does your future tournament schedule look like? I am thinking of joining the Errant Knights

  5. After playing in a tournament for 6 consecutive weeks, it'll be nice to finally get a break. I might have 1 more tournament this year. If not, my next will be Jan. 19-20 at the Michigan Class Championships.

    Of course, that could change at a moment's notice if a good tournament pops up.

  6. Well done. That's an incredible improvement. A 50 point increase in rating is a great achievement.


  7. Ivan

    Im curious why didnt you play the last round v garvin for experience at least >


  8. It was due to a scheduling conflict.
