Good luck to all in the finals!
John Williams won TCC’s August 2020 Tuesday Knighter tournament with a fine score of 7-1. His reputation of class and strength continues to solidify itself in TCC history. TCC also congratulates Pedro Valdericeda and Josh Perez for splitting the under 1600 performance prize.
Pedro Valdericeda (left) put up a titanic defensive effort against John in round 8 that played down into an opposite colored bishop endgame, but alas John’s two pass pawns and active King pressed home for the full point.

The ongoing saga of our flagship tournament continues! In September, TCC looks forward to more great stories with 10 rounds of action scheduled, two USCF-rated G/45 rounds each Tuesday night.
NOTE: TCC will not have a 10-player maximum but all other Covid-19 rules will be enforced.
TCC is looking to supplement its income while it bridges the gap into a better tomorrow. If there’s anything any of you would like to and are able to contribute to our nonprofit club, TCC would greatly appreciate it. TCC uses what it has to help its community through the game we love and it’s many benefits. Thank you.
With a score of 7-1, Marius Lucan once again won clear first place in TCC No. 82 that finished July 28. His only loss was to state championship contender Byran Shapiro, MD, who topped the field in terms of rating. This was TCC’s second Tuesday night Swiss since re-opening since closing for a few months due to Covid-19.
The action continues next Tuesday, August 4, with a new 8-round G/45 Swiss. Once again, masks will be required and there will be a limit of 10 persons in the club at one time. So, if you want to play on Tuesday nights in August, contact TCC to reserve a spot.
The Summer 2020 Junior Joust series has begun. Brandon Yu took first place with a perfect 4-0 score. Giovanna Bascon got 2-2, Max Bascon got 1.5-2.5 and first-timer Malachi Stiles got 0.5-3.5. This was a small 4-round Swiss which featured some very exciting games. Malachi Stiles vs. Max Bascon in round two was a back and forth barn burner that ended in a stalemate draw. These kids are off to a good start and we’ll see how the rest of the season develops.
The next Junior Joust is planned in two weeks.
For July’s G/45 Tuesday Nighter tournament we recommend calling or emailing ahead for reservations seeing that our capacity limit will be 10 players. We currently have 9 spots open for July.
Please use 469.835.4551 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot if you would like to play.
The landline should be up and running soon but until then please use the cell number or email for contacting us.
As events unfold and adjustments are called for we must be flexible and socially responsible at the same time and of course follow the law.
Therefore, masks will now be required to enter the club and the Junior Joust Winter finals set for Saturday is postponed.
Also, we will have a maximum of 10 people allowed in the club at any one time.
These are the only changes so far but we will keep you updated on any further adjustments that may come.
Our kids classes, private lessons, free play and Tuesday night tournament will continue but we will be firm on these rules.
Thank you for your understanding in advance.
