Diamondback Chess held their first rated tournament of the year on May 31st, directed by Willow LeTard and John LeTard, and hosted at the I-25 Fuddruckers!
We had held chess arenas online every Monday from March 23rd in 2020 until Monday, May 31st 2021, when we got to return to the board!
We had 10 people come out for 6 rounds of blitz, with players from Albuquerque, Socorro, and Las Cruces. Seeing each other in person, for the first time in over a year. We had several returning players from our Diamondback Chess alumni, players new to the club, and even some unrated players just joining USCF over the board tournaments for the first time!
It was wonderful having everyone back, and we'd like to thank everyone for coming out to play as well as Fuddruckers having us back! A special congratulations for JJ Scott for placing in first with 6/6 wins!
Diamondback Chess will continue hosting tournaments every Monday with varying time controls and formats, but always starting at 6:00pm and ending around 8:00pm at 4855 Pan American Freeway, Albuquerque, New Mexico, 87109
