2008 WOCC Championship Games

Here are three games played by the top finishers in this year's edition of the club championship. Bryan Cohen submitted his 5th round victory over the always dangerous Bob West and Victor Rosas - our new club champion - submitted his win over Bryan, who finished in second place, and his draw with defending club champion Peter Radomskyj from the final round, enabling him to secure sole possession of first place. I will endeavor to format these in the on-line chess game viewer later this week. I am presently experiencing some technical difficulties with my high speed internet connection at home and only have access from the office. Thanks for your patience and enjoy the games.

West, Robert (1746) – Cohen, Bryan (1858)

Oh, and by the way, here are some scores that I neglected to post from the final make-up rounds of the championship. As you can see from the games above, Rosas v. Radomskyj was drawn and Victor Rosas beat Bryan Cohen. Also, John Hagerty defeated Nicholas Kant, Harvey Susswein defeated Ken Ganning, Paul Corcoran beat Harry Katz and I drew with Leon Hariton. Other reports: Victor Rosas defeated Bob West and Charles Kirck defeated Nicholas Kant. That should bring the reporting up to date. Thanks.
