Lennart ”Pennan” Sandström: Man of the evening

DSC_0087ASSU is still going strong through out the whole of summer. Kent ”Big Machine” held another evening of intense chess at his flat in Berghem.

Eight people showed up and blitz games and socializing with beer was the main activity taking place. After 23:00 three brave ASSU-boyz ventured to the boat ”Båten” and had another round.

Lennart ”Pennan” Sandström led the way to Båten and talked the loudest all evening. Thus showing everyone how to make the most of a good evening.

Thank you Pennan! :)

ASSU aftermath.

Hello!

It was a nice evening with ten people at Terrängvägen this week. The club president showed tactical prowess against Kristos visiting from Greece and ”Roocking Tower” Hedqvist. Jimmy ”Dean” Norqvist held his ground against Isak ”Hayes” playing Shock late in the evening.

Kent ”Big Machine” played 10 min blitz against Peter from Ö-vik, result? 1-1! Behzad trained hard showing great skill in analyzing a prepared game.

Rickard ”Big Papa” brought boards and snacks. :)

We train again Wednesday at 18:00 Terrängvägen 6B due to a succeful event.

Pictures from SUMMERHEAT III and Frisbee Session

8 mer eller mindre nybörjare vågade sig ut i I20 skogen, där nybörjarna började med kast närmare 10 meter, men till slut knäckte de som fuskat förut.De åtta blev två lag där 4 nybörjare möte 4 med erfarenhet. Nybörjarna fick handikapp så att de inte skulle bli krossade av de erfarna. I början fick nybörjarna halvera sina kast men det visade sig var ett för stort handikapp för de erfarna att rå på inte minst pga att Gerold Jäger spelade starkt.

Gerold chockade oss alla med sin okända talang i frisbee golf, med sina långa raka kast och därmed passade handikappet till skogstrollen.De resterande nio ” hålen” spelades med endast ett slag i handikapp. Det blev en mycket lyckad ändring då av de kvarvarande ” hålen vann varje lag var sitt hål och resten slutade oavgjort med de nya handikapp reglerna.

Alla spelare hade något kast som var utmärkt även om en del ibland såg ut att försöka avverka skog. Alla inblandade var nog nöjda med tillställningen ,,,, men mest glada var nog myggen!

Efteråt så blev det pizza och blixt schack och ett ”Stormästarpart” i Go, däremot rostade dart pilarna fast i tavlan då surret tog över föreställningen.

Vi i ASSU gillar schack men vi tycker även om att göra andra saker,,,, Har ni något trevligt förslag som ni tycker vi borde göra,,,,, Fram med det var inte blyg!

FIDE CM RICKARD ENGMAN WINNER OF RUN 3 of SUMMERHEAT. WITH A FULL SCORE TABLE:

Fest20141206_9769

CM Engman winner of SUMMERHEAT III; both playing and bein tournament director at the same time! Well done ASSU Boy.

But the big performance is ASSU:S own prodigy Viktor Alvarsson, who came second with 5 out of 7.

IMG_0921

ASSU:s player Med student Viktor Alvarsson scored 5/7 earning him a fantastic performance around 2000 in ELO and a lot of new elo points.

Alvarsson goes from one matter of solving chess problems to wining both the rating prize and finishing second after Engman.

With his result this season he has probably played himself into the first ASSU 1: team in a very short matter of time.

Sharing third place is ASSU:s newest member Dr. Michael Piwowar from Poland (havent played since he was a young man in Poland at age 16, with a 1700 rating at the time), with a good score, 4,5/ 7 and Isak Ersholt 4,5. Piwowar took a FIDE Norm at 1900 as well! Congratulations. The Tournament was indeed an international event with 5 different nations representative (Chile, Poland, Iran, Sweden and Finland)!

IMG_1008

Isak also made a strong tournament and finishing with 4,5 point only loosing to Engman and a + 1830 performance.

SK Rockaden Umeås Mikael Forsberg started in a very high tempo, playing great  inspiring chess, with wins against Schack 64 Lars-Göran Carlsson and ASSU:s Magnus Stenius (who arranged a lot of the tournament during play and did not perform in his usual rating span), he was at the top board in round 6, in a good position at the board, before falling for the queen king fork trap.
