Medieval chess tournament results

Two chess tournaments were held on Saturday July 28 under beautiful blue skies at the Medieval Chess Festival in Cooks Creek, MB.  Twelve players competed in the unrated tournament and 10 players in the open tournament.  There was a 3-way tie for first in the unrated tournament.   Riley Chamartin, Joseph Dimabuyu and Austin Spence won with 4.0 points.   In the open tournament, Manitoba champion Isaac Wiebe took first place with 5.0 points with Colin Prince placing second with 3.5 points.

The day concluded with a live player chess match featuring Colin Prince’s “dragon” team versus Carl Pottinger’s “dragon-slayers”.   The dragons prevailed in an exciting knock-em-down, drag-em-out affair!

Many attendees also played chess on our giant chess board or on the tables set up for non-tournament players.

The Manitoba Chess Association  thanks the Medieval Festival organizers for the opportunity to showcase chess at their wonderful, well-attended event.
