City Championship 2000
Doug Eckert retains his title of City Champion.


This has been a real battle with lots of "Preparation for Round 5", which can be seen below.
Chief TD for this event is Greg Krog....
Win TD has a system for pairing round robin tournament is kind of neat.   Who gets the most Whites? The player doesn't know until the last round pairings. Everything is done randomly. No one will get an unfair number of Whites. This system was not used for this tournament, because everyone in the field, except for Eckert, earned their spot by playing in the Candidates.
Make sure that you always...call the TD if you can't make Friday night. And never withdraw from any tournament.
