Richard Murphy-Lorenzo, & Simonaitis-K.Schemitz Win Team Championship

by on May 11, 2007

The 2007 (or 7th Annual) Queens CC Team Championship was held at the Club’s Jamaica, NY playing site, from 04/20/2007 through 05/11/2007 (inclusive).  The teams consisted of two or three players (the latter if an alternate took part), and the usual 30/75. SD/60 time control applied in the four-round Team Swiss event.

Including a total of three alternates, 31 players took part in the event.

When the dust of all the battles had settled, two teams emerged victorious above the twelve other contenders. “Capablanca’s Machine,” comprised of Richard Murphy (1980) and Antonio Lorenzo (1922), and “Ken Rooney’s Team Win?” made up of Arunas Simonaitis (2004) and Kenneth Schemitz (1765) , finished with 3.5 team Match Points out of a possible four.  This meant that each team won $97.50 for its efforts.

The Under 1700 team prize (this determined by the average ratings of the top two players on a team) was won  by “The Odd Brothers,” consisting of Brian Blake (1867) and Bradley Rice (1491).  This duo scored 2.5 Match Points, and thus won $78 for its efforts in the tournament.

Arunas Simonaitrs scored 3.5 game points out of four, and thus took home the top Board One prize of $78.

The top Board Two Prize was split evenly between Arthur Wei (1896) and Kenneth Schemitz.  Each player scored 3.5 game points out of a possible four, and won $39,
