February Blitz: Thursday 2nd
Our next blitz tournament will be on Thursday 2nd February, in our usual venue, the Bridge Centre (upstairs), St Mary’s Road. Please be there between 7.30 and 7.45 to enter. It will be in our standard format: 7 rounds, played at 5 minutes per player for the game, plus a 5 second increment per move. We expect the event to finish about 10.30, and we will provide all equipment.
January’s blitz saw our largest turnout so far this season, with a good mix of established members and newcomers. The winner – who led throughout – was Alla Bronnikova with 6½ points (only conceding one draw, to Brian Gallagher), and second was Alex Drimbarean, on 6 (losing to Alla, and winning all his other games). The rating prize, for the highest placed player seeded in the bottom half, went (on tie-break) to Bryn Edwards, who scored 4 points, coming 5th, ahead of several much higher-rated players.
