January Blitz results

Our first blitz tournament of 2018, held on Thursday 25 January, saw some familiar names from 2017 collecting the prizes. The winner was Jason Rawlinson, who scored 6 points out of 7 (Jason lost only to Khai Asyraf, who was playing in his first Galway Blitz; but Jason demonstrated that he has learnt how to beat all the regulars by winning all his remaining games – so Khai needs to get his wins in before Jason rumbles how to beat him as well). Second, for now the fifth month in a row, was Pete Morriss on 5½ – he won in January and February 2017, but has obviously forgotten since then how to actually win these tournaments. The grading prize was won again by November’s winner, Andrejs Kozlovs; this is probably his last chance to get the coveted grading prize, as we expect his grade to soar after his next graded tournament in Bunratty next month.
