From 4 to 32 in four months

Abe played in a G-45 chess tournament last Sunday afternoon. Back about four months ago,  he played the same G-45 tournament when the tournament was debuted as a monthly event. At that time, only four players showed up. So they played in a round robin format, every one played each of the rest, which resulted in three rounds, although four rounds was advertised. I remembered we went back home around 6:00pm.

Since 32 players showed up yesterday,  there were enough players for four rounds. Some people withdrew from the last round in order to return home early. Abe played all four games— finished his last game around 8:45 pm. If you plan to play the same events in future, you might want to register early, the chess center can only hold 40 player as I counted yesterday.
