Losing Point Lightning results

Well done to all that came for the battle of attrition last Tuesday night. The losing points lightning was hotly contested over no less than 15 rounds, the placings were as follows:

1st – Steve (Go Mr President!!)

2nd – Julian

3rd – Sergey

Next week is the completion of the Western Masters series.

Losing Points Lightning

Next week (17th July) we will play a skittles or knock out lightning (5 minute time, no increment) event. It is a very enjoyable and unique challenge where each player will commence with a certain number of points based on their rating. It is each player’s job to protect their points, as losses lose 1 point and draws lose 1/2 a point, with players eliminated when reaching zero, resulting in the last player left standing being declared the winner.

The points each player starts with, depending on their current ACF rating is:

ACF Rating     Starting Points
 > 2050        1.5 points
1901 - 2050    2 points
1751 - 1900    2.5 points
1601 - 1750    3 points
1451 - 1600    3.5 points
1301 - 1400    4 points
1151 - 1300    4.5 points
1001 - 1150    5 points 
1000 or less   5.5 points

Lightning #2 results

Well done to David and Dean for taking out the event, and also to Pranav and Max who both scored 4/7 and played well above their rating.

Standing at round 7 (last round)

Lightning results

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.
