Lightning #2 results

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.

Grunfeld Allegro results

Below are the results for the Grunfeld themed allegro night. Well done to Dean, closely followed by Nathan and Julio. There also seem to be some new names I have not seen before, so welcome to Julio, Alvin and Peter.

This Tuesday is the start of the Koshnitsky cup, which will decide qualification for the club championship, which is very tight after 3 tournaments.
