Congratulations to Dean for winning this fun event (well, not fun for all of us, but certainly not serious!). Placings below.

Next week is the start of the Western Masters. If you are unable to make Round 1 and would like to play, please advise Steven as the tournaments are round robins, so games can be caught up.

Also, welcome to Andrew Fletcher, a new player visiting the club.

We had 22 players contribute to our lightning night on Tuesday. Some interesting tussles, mistakes, weird options, and that was before we even sat down 😉 Bruce showed his class with a picket fence score, but I think it was still impolite to beat Regina (table below).

Next week is the start of our Purdy Cup event. All welcome!.Remember, these 1-game-a-week events are both ACF and FIDE rated.

Well 23 eager players turned up for the recent lightning event, and it was pleasing to see that everyone won at least one game. Dean came out on top, followed closely by Nathan and Niruthi. Nathan was looking like the winner until the final round when he was upset by Niruthi.

A full lightning night!

From Steven:

Firstly, I want to say how terrific it was to have 33 players at the lightning on tuesday. This is by far and away the biggest attendance we’ve had at a single night in many years. Special thanks goes to Tony for getting a number of juniors down, however there were a large number of senior players, which is exciting for the year ahead.
Attached are the results for the tournament, Dean, David and Vishal jointly won with 6/7, well done to the winners.
Next week is the start of the next 5 round tournament, the Purdy Cup.
