Results of Idaho Closed Weekend Tournaments


President's Day Weekend is known as the Idaho Closed Weekend in Idaho, though I doubt any Presidents actually play chess regularly. The idea was simple; since the Idaho Closed is postponed due to Covid-19, why not have a weekend full of online tournaments with a plethora of time controls and start times to choose from? I feel that this was successful as it offered 46 chess players an opportunity to continue honing their skills. Also, tournaments were won by a variety of players though the dominant force was James Wei whom won 3 tournaments he entered. The next few tournaments will be for scholastics and the next online open is slated for the end of March.
