VA Senior Open 2014

Final Results


Virginia Chess Federation
VA Senior Open 2014

BRIEF REVIEW: Below are the results from the VA Senior Open tournament held in 2014. The venue was the same as in recent years but the format was different in that there were 5 rounds each at a G/120, d5 time control. Also, for the first time the program was associated with the Chess 4 Seniors regional competition in which prizes are awarded for best performance in a series of senior tournaments in KY, TN, WV, VA, NC and SC.


Unfortunately, USCF could not keep this program going. It may transition to a new format for 2017.
