Dear Chess Friends:
Thank you for the support we continue to receive on the Thematic Tourneys.
The first (March 2005) was the Nimzo-Indian and the Chess Assistant program routed all 9/9 for first place. IM Watu Kobese came second while FM Mark Rubery was third.
April was the Ruy Lopez month and we saw Spencer Masango (Zimbabwe) & Musatwe Simutowe (Zambia) draw the Machine. Kobese was crushed by the Machine; he however capitalized by blasting the Zim & Zam boys to win the event over Chess Assistant on tiebreaks. Third was Simutowe and Masango crushed Rubery to share 4th with Daniel Cawdery and Dlalisa (Soweto) .
On May 14th, the ONE SATURDAY EVENT will be on Sicilian Defense (1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 ....Black to play). Please see the entry bulletin attached. Visit www.sajca.com and www.gjca.com. Thank you for your patronage.
