Most Serious Chess Team in Texas.

Hillsboro, Texas (26 October 2019). The Waco Hogs, led by Team Captain Carmen Chairez, ended a three-year losing skid with a dominating 19-11 victory over the Tarrant Butchers at Hill College on Saturday. Seven Waco players scored “Aces” (2-0 sweeps) to pace the winning Hogs: Thomas Capps, Randy Dixon, Robert Morgan, Marshall Patterson, Dave Lemper, Jim Anderau, and Wayne Sampson.

Robert Morgan scored “first blood” in Round One to set the tone for the rest of the day. The Hogs never trailed from there and built an impressive 10-point lead by halftime (10 to 5). BRAZOS Co-Founder John De Vries scored the winning point, 15-1/2 to 7-1/2, for the victorious Hogs.

The Tarrant Butchers had their own heros. Chris Johnson and Team Captain Bob Curtis both scored Aces.

BRAZOS is the annual team match between the most serious chess players in the Heart of Texas. Recruiting Season for BRAZOS V begins on July 15, 2020.
