Thursday 2 November: Blitz Tournament

This Thursday’s offering for you is one of our more popular events: an evening blitz tournament. Each player will have 5 minutes to make all their moves, plus an extra 5 seconds increment for each move made. Registration for the tournament is from 7.00 p.m. to 7.20 p.m., and the games will start at exactly 7.30. Anybody who arrives after the pairings for the first round have been announced can be included from the second round. There will be seven games for all players, and we expect the tournament to finish at about 10.00 p.m.

Our last 5+5 blitz, held in September, attracted 26 players, and was won jointly by Anand Kumar S and Pete Morriss, with 6 points out of 7. The rating prize, for the highest-placed player rated in the bottom half, was won by Shane Loughlin, with an excellent 4 points.
