February Blitz Results

The latest of our monthly blitzes took place on Thursday 22 February. The star performer on the night was undoubtedly James Blackwell, who started as one of the lowest rated entrants, but finished third, with 4½ points out of seven, having played – and mostly beaten – all the strongest players in the tournament. Indeed, he was first equal with two rounds to go, but couldn’t quite maintain that position, and so had to be content with the grading prize. The overall prize was shared by two players on 6 points: Alex Drimbarean (who lost to James and won all his other games) and Pete Morriss (who lost to Alex).
