In Memory of Jose Alvarez (1968-2017)

R.I.P Jose Alvarez who died on February 24.

Jose was a member of the Rooty Hill Chess Club for over 10 years.

He was an enthusiastic chess player who particularly liked to play Blitz and Allegro tournaments with their shorter time controls. Blitz Chess with 5 or 10 minutes were his favourites and in those events his name could always be found near or on top of the table.  

Winning the 2015 Handicap Blitz (5 min) and sharing first place in this years Jan 23 Blitz (10 min) were some of his best results in recent years.  

He will be sorely missed at the club.
