KingCo Chess League

The last week of KingCo chess league did not go well. We already knew we would not qualify for the state come petition, even worse we had to play Overlake. In a blitz match, Overlake lost 1-4 against Issaquah, a surprising result as they had higher rated players. So we would have to play Overlake. And we lost, 1-4 also. I played a bad StonewAll, which means I won't show the game.

Oh well, now I should try a Nimzo-Indian!

Each year, the KingCo league (comprising 19 schools) selects principals of the year who embody leadership attributes that are acknowledged and appreciated by his/her principal peers. A principal is selected for each level (4A, 3A, 2A) as well as an associate principal in each level. The last week of KingCo chess league did not go well. We already knew we would not qualify for the state come petition, even worse we had to play Overlake. In a blitz match, Overlake lost 1-4 against Issaquah, a surprising result as they had higher rated players. So we would have to play Overlake. Mercer Island (19-2) will play Bellevue (18-4) Friday at 6:30 p.m. For the league's top seed in next week's Sea-King District Tournament. Bellevue, the defending KingCo 3A Tournament champion.

Takeaway: I hate to praise anyone but myself, but RookSacrifice is amazing against the Dutch Defense! Here is why:

Woodinville is a city in King County, Washington United States. The population was 10, 938 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Seattle metropolitan area Chrys.

This is the game that really made me give up the Dutch Defense.
