Kickoff for 2021!

We have now resumed chess for 2021, in a covid-safe manner, with 28 players on the starting line for the Honourable Bob 5 round/week event. We welcome 10 new faces to the event. Perhaps this is due to a) a desire to get out and meet other chess players or b) the popularity of the Netflix Queens Gambit. Unfortunately no female players presented themselves on Tuesday, but we remain hopeful.

Round 1 results and draft round 2 pairings are below. Please remember to a) bring your own pen (for the scoresheet), b) to pay the $15 event entry fee (in cash preferably) and c) contact Steven BEFORE Tuesday if you require a bye for the next round.
