Emil Rem And Betty Bergeron shine in Calgary

From Juraj Pivovarov:
Fourteen players competed in as many rounds in Calgary on June 18 and 19th 2022.  As it was Father’s Day weekend, and getting close to July and summer holidays, there were many who weren’t able to make it.
Three out-of-towners came from the neighboring provinces and two out of three finished in the money!
A vote was taken as to whether to have a round robin or do Swiss pairings.  Swiss pairings won out, meaning more repeats but players would generally play more of their ratings peers.
Summer Tournament Results
Honourable mention for best upset goes to Estelle Matthews (695) for beating George Macaulay (1728) in the very first round.  She went on to pick up about 50 rating points in the tournament.
Emil Rem played very well, also picking up some 50 rating points and finishing second after defeating Juraj Pivovarov, the event winner, twice in a row to close out his tournament.
In the Under 1300 section, Betty Bergeron was first with 7-7, +181, edging out Hank Hees and Richard Martin.
We hope you’ll consider joining us in Calgary on September 30th thru October 2, 2022, for the Canadian Open 8, with 21 rounds = 8+8+5 over three days.
