December Blitz Results

The final blitz tournament of the year took place on Thursday 14 December. The highlight of the evening were the excellent goodies provided by the baking skills of Kynesha and Jacinta Ryder, which were much enjoyed by all present. Turning to the chess, the tournament was won by Conall Hegarty, with 6 points out of 7. Second, for the fourth month in a row, was Pete Morriss (always the bridesmaid …), with 5½. The grading prize went to Ger Abberton, on 4 points, though a special mention should be made of Steven Mols who scored three points, playing against most of the top players present on the night.
