Congratulations to David Lucky who on Father's Day won the Idaho Open for the second straight year (after doing the same in the Idaho Closed too). David tells us that in classic games now, he has won 27 consecutive games and has no draws or losses. We will be researching, but likely is that this is an all time record. The 2016 Idaho Open was one of the strongest ever, and all 34 players had a great time. Results and all the other stuff should be posted soon, so stay tuned.

The next ICA tournament is the Idaho Blitz Chess Championship on July 16. Hope to see you all there!
