Chess Notes

Weekly chess column

Lawyer Times, who is not a lawyer, but is a loyal and low-key attendant at Boylston Chess Club and sometimes at Metrowest, has broken the grip of Chris Chase on the Boylston Club Championship. Chase had won the most recent year’s championship, but this year was different. The club’s championship entries are determined by acceptance of invitations sent to the 20 top-rated members. One or two lower-rated players can also qualify by winning the Reubens-Landey tournament.

This year, Carey Theil and Simon Warfield were co-winners. Warfield declined his invitation. This year had uncommonly low number of entrants, only seven, though they were all strong players rated well over 2100.
