Rob Watson has created cross-tables for all three groups which include all the latest results. I believe there are only two results outstanding which will not affect the players who progress to the next round. Bill and Argo will have to have a playoff to see who progress to the Finals.

Chess Heaven on Earth???

Le Café Pi

Le Café Pi from Candice Vallantin on Vimeo.

This is a mini-documentary about Café Pi, the only chess café in Quebec and maybe Canada. It's owned and run by Arpad Kiss and his daughter Vanessa. This July, 2011, the café is celebrating it's 10th anniversary.

I worked here part-time for a couple months and I grew quite fond of all the regulars and everyone I worked with. I thought it would make a great subject for my first shot at making movies.

I hope you like it!

Cheers,
