withdrew after 3rd round
Players were welcomed to Econo Lodge Hotel, 2133 Hanford Road, Burlington, NC by a nice office desktop display announcing "Welcome ! 2014 11-Man National Open Checker Tournament"
Congratulations! To World Champion GM Alex Moiseyev of Dublin, Ohio who won the 2014 11-Man National Tournament. GM Alex Moiseyev won the title in 2008 and has defended his title four times since then form National winners or runner-up challengers.
Congratulations! To IM Tim Laverty of Graham, North Carolina who was our 2014 2nd Place 11-Man Ballot National Champion, and earned the privilege to challenge the Champ to a WTM. Laverty won his position over a tie on game points with Joe Moore of Levittown, PA but earned more honor points for his 2nd Place Finish .
Congratulations! To Glenn Fuquay of Elon, North Carolina who won our Majors Division "Class B" and the new 2014 11-Man Ballot Majors National Champion. When you win a divisional title you must move up to the next level for the next 3 years.
Time was given to our 3-Move National Director, Michael Holmes to explain
the bid and venue just published in the ACF Jan/Feb 2014 Bulletin. Michael explained the reason he choose Louisville,
was because of a substantial contribution. The tournament playing room
and starting times were dictated by the owner of Bluegrassmagic Gameshop.
Wednesday through Sunday (12:00am - 9:00pm) was there business hours.
The Louisville Youth Checker Club also uses this location, and their
National is also scheduled to be held there. This should increase and
promote checkers in the Louisville Metro by bring GrandMasters and Masters
to their club location and introducing a professional level of skill that a
National commands, to the youth players in the club and to the public. Michael covered the details of
how a player should vote and mail in his ballot to determine the number of
games per round and how many rounds in the group they plain to play in at
National. Also if they wanted to pay $50 per day to start at 10:00am.
Basically you are voting on scoring by game or ballot as 4 game round, or
play 2 game rounds. Either way we must fit number of rounds per day or
number of games to fit our 5 days venue facility. There seems to be a push
to play 2 games per round scored by game, allowing a player more rounds so
you get to play more opponents. Traditionally Masters played 4 games
GM stands for Grand Master, IM for International Master, and CM for Candidate Master, which are earned titles given to distinguish players by WCDF.

"/" separates player's game points for that round from his accumulated game points. Win is 2 points, Draw is 1, Bye is 3, and a Forfeit is 4.
A group of players enjoyed daily lunch at K&W Cafeteria during the tournament. Sunday afternoon following the close of the tournament, Tim Laverty invited everyone to accompany him to Harbor Inn Seafood Restaurant, a popular eatery for an excellent meal, fellowship, and a fitting tournament conclusion.
We appreciate Tim Laverty as our official referee and scorekeeper, and also appreciate Econo Lodge Hotel, our venue for keeping coffee available and providing us an adequate playing room.
We will submitted all recorded games to Jim Loy so he can review, correct, verify, and annotate them for publication.
We appreciate the donations and contributions which totaled $1,200.00. This and the $690 entry fees collected made $1,440.00 less expenses = 1,200.00 total cash prize.
All players will received a 2013 memorial coffee mug and a nice deck of laminated 11-Man Ballot Cards. Incidentally, the mugs didn't arrive on time and I will be delivering them to you when I see you at another tournament. It cost too much to mail them. However, we did draw names and give away 7 door prizes.
A delightful tournament & wonderful fellowship was had by all who attended!
