Deadwood Chess Club Results


 
 
 
Dec 8, 2015. A BIG Thanks to the 45 players who came out for the 2015 Deadwood Chess Club Open in the cold and fog! With a $500 donation from the Deadwood Club we were able to pay a decent prize fund. My thanks to Bob Banta from the Deadwood Club and Gordon Simons and Ben Pitchkites for all the work in setting up/taking down and helping me run a fairly smooth tournament. In the end Mike Herron took 1st place and $250. Here is his last Rd. win over Master Jim Mills.
