Western events update

As we approach the final round of this series of tournaments, it’s time for an update. The final round will be played in a fortnight’s time (26 July).

Skittles (Losing points lightning)

Next week (19th July) we will play our annual skittles lightning event. For our President, this is the best short-form we play each year. It will involve all players commencing on a certain number of points based on rating, with points lost for losing or drawing games. Once players reach 0 points, they are eliminated, until we have only the winner standing.

Ever wanted the chance to eliminate your best mate from a tournament, this is your chance. In the first two years of playing the event, our President finished dead last and first. We never know what will happen – well he certainly doesn’t!. 😉

Hoping to see many players up for a night of light hearted fun.

Western Masters events coming soon!

I hope that you are looking forward to a well attended Western Masters series.

The Western Masters will be played over 5 weeks from 21 June. If you will be away week 1 or will be late arriving please advise Steven so he can include you in the pairings. The event is a round robin, played over 5 weeks with players paired with opponents with a similar rating as follows:

  • Western Masters Round Robin – Players 1 to 6
  • Western Major Round Robin – Players 7 to 12
  • Western Minor Round Robin – Players 13 to 18
  • Western Swiss – Remaining Players

 If you are unavailable for a week, this can be accommodated as we will have a week off for lightning between rounds 4 and 5. Players are free to play catch-up games that evening.

With only 1 round to go (on 24th July), things are coming to a conclusion for this 5 round event, split over 3 round robin and one swiss tournament. I apologise for not posting for a while, but I was moving house. Some withdrawals from the round robins have affected the results, requiring some multiple byes. A catch-up for games missed is possible upstairs next week, if required. So the updates are as follows:
