Nevada State Championship 2013

David Lucky and Jerry Weikel, who commented that he was playing some of his best chess ever squared off for the 2 game match in Tonopah Nevada at the Station House on September 28, 2013. In the first game, Jerry was slowly outplayed in a double rook ending, and he put up a tenacious defense in a long game. The second game was a quick affair when David easily refuted an early knight sacrifice to win 2-0.

Nevada North-South Match 2013

The two teams met in conjunction with the state championship for the annual match to see who takes that big trophy back home. This writer knew that if the south was to win, we would have to take the match, and most of the north players sported higher ratings.
The south team lead 6-4 after the first round and with two very(!) quick victories in round two, they were even. The rest of the games were all tough games,with the balance shifting back and forth, and the match hung in the balance for a long time. A couple of south players converted lost or equal positions to win their games. Cameron Patterson’s brilliant endgame combination with Fred Casten’s sealed the match that ended 6.5-3.5 in the second round. Score South 12.5 North 7.5
