July Blitz results

The inaugural summer blitz held on 7 July took a slightly different form than usual; in recognition of the long evenings, we decided to play a full ten rounds – five double rounds with both black and white against each opponent – instead of our normal seven. The winner, by a long way, was Brendan Buckley with a remarkable 9½ points out of 10. Second was Denis Ruchko (who was also the only player to take a half point off Brendan) with 6½; this was also an excellent performance as Denis came above three much higher-rated players.

Our next blitz is on Thursday 4 August. We will decide how many rounds to play on the night.
