January Blitz results

The January blitz, held on Thursday 26th, was won by Pete Morriss, on 6/7 (losing only to December’s winner, Fintan Hegarty). Second was the reigning Winter League champion, Carlos Silva, on 5½ – losing to Pete, and drawing with Denis Ruchko after a long rook and pawn ending which Carlos managed to hold a pawn down; Carlos also beat Fintan in the last round, thereby ensuring that Fintan didn’t retain his title. The Grading Prize went to the ungraded K.S. Gopal, who scored an excellent 4½.
