U. S. AMATEUR WEST

U.S. Amateur WestTom Green, former co-advisor of the Bishops Chess Club now living in Prescott, Arizona, played in the U. S. Amateur West Chess Championship and won his class prize. This chess tournament, sponsored by the Southern Arizona Chess Association, brought 162 players to Tucson, Arizona over the Memorial Day weekend. The United States Chess Federation rated tournament was divided into Championship, Reserve, and Booster Sections. Also, three one-day Scholastic Sections featured K-6 graders with ratings under 1,000. Green tied for sixth in the 49-player Championship Section and received a plaque and digital clock as the top 1800-1899 player. Green scored three wins, was held to two draws, and lost only one game to Joseph Kruml, Sierra Vista, who tied for first place this year and last with 5-1 records both years. The U.S. Chess Federation maintains a rating system that allows chess players to determine their proficiency in the game and allows prizes to be more fairly distributed. Green is currently the 91st highest rated active Arizona chess player.

Here is Tom Green's last round win from the U.S. Amateur West against an opponent who won the biggest upset prize in round three for beating someone with a rating difference of 314 points. Although Lebovitz won the exchange and had his chances in this game, he overlooked the power of the two Bishops.
