Adele, Rolling In the Deep [2]

While several members were either unavailable, or dealing with personal or medical issues, it must be noted that this is still strong tournament. So much so that, with twenty participants, over a total of six rounds each person will have opportunity to play 32% of all of his ENTIRE competitors (twenty less one--you cannot play yourself--is nineteen, divided by six).

Unless you are near the top of the bottom of the seeding, you can pretty much rest assured that you will be playing six games with opposition averaging about 1780 ELO [3]

[1] WOCC President John Hagerty is the Tournament Director (TD) for this tournament, but Roger is, as always, a resource for the club with this same qualification. John officiates and stands by the quality of fair play, and Roger helps submit the results to the USCF electronically. Thank you Roger. Thank you John.

[2] The editor wishes to uphold his self-appointed adoption of Race's Third Theorem of Video Relevance. It states that across N occasions across a span of a1: b2 social-psychological variability, that if a blog editor were to post one video out of four (at least so it seems) apparently totally irrelevant to Tournament Chess at Standard time Controls, that the odds decrease linearly that Doran might seek to undertake a total and vehement coups d'├ętat, if and only if such editor makes certain to thereafter post other videos pertinent to chess, to proactively protect against such an outcome. This video is one of those one in four, and as indicated members can now expect more chess videos, with the proviso that such editor, as a perk of his effort, can be expected to share one in four videos to entertain others, and in so doing, entertain himself.

[3] The editor wishes to vett these numbers, estimated for illustration purposes only. He will do that once he sees the seeding chart.
