Rubinstein Open: High Participation and Passionate Games

19 players signed up for the Rubinstein open. That is a new record for our online tournaments. As some of you may have noted we are running a Swiss tournament with accelerated pairings. As a consequence we saw highly competitive pairings in round 1 already.

This time I got help from John Wright with the game annotations. Here is his game against Larry Stevens

The rest of the games are annotated by John or me. You can find them here.

If anyone would like to annotate their game or any other game please let me know. We all can learn from each other.

I will post the final pairings for the next round tomorrow night. Just keep an eye on our tournament website:

As you may have noticed this link is the same throughout the tournament. I just posted preliminary pairings. Unless I get a bye later today or somebody else joins the tournament the pairings won’t change.
