2017 Saint Louis Winter Invitational: Drawing of Lots with Wine Glasses

Jonathan Schrantz and Mike Kummer determine the order of pairings for the seasonal GM and IM Norm tournaments (2/16 – 2/21). Two Club members face each other on André Breton and Nicolas Calas’s “Wine Glass Set and Board,” on display at the World Chess Hall of Fame.

Ten random glasses (the pieces) have a seed number attached to them. When one is captured, that number is assigned to two players.
