The home of chess in Galway
There were 12 attendees at our April/End of Season blitz. This made an all-play-all rather tricky, but by taking 30seconds off the clock after each round, we managed to squeeze all the games in. The beautiful crosstable is below, whence you can see that in first place was Zalan with 10.5/11, having conceded a draw only to Big Andy; in second place was Jason with 9/11, losing only to Zalan and Johannes; and in third place, with 8.5 points was newcomer Johannes.
There will continue to be monthly blitzes, weekly meetings from 8 on Tuesdays in Monroe’s, and the annual Galway Rapidplay will take place on June 8th, so keep your calendars free.
