October Blitz: Thursday 13 October

Our next blitz tournament is on Thursday 13 October, at our usual venue: upstairs in the Bridge Centre, St Mary’s Road. Start time is 7.45, and we expect to finish about 10.30. There will be 7 rounds, with each player getting 5 minutes per game for their moves, plus an increment of 5 seconds per move. Entry is free to members; if you are not yet a member, you can join on the night. Enter on arrival. Latecomers can join the tournament, but will have missed the first round or two.

Our last tournament, held on 15 September, resulted in a three-way tie for first place between Pete Morriss, Adriana Palao, and Alex Drimberean who all scored 6 points out of 7 – winning one and losing one against each other, and beating everybody else. The rating prize went to Scott Reilly, on tie-break, with 3/7.

We’re looking forward to seeing you on the 13th.
