Hi All,

All games in round two have now been completed.

Results so far:

Round 1

Rose Saunders  ½ – ½ Mike Henbury

Suzan Dunleavy 0 – 1 John Kooner

Rob Sims ½ – ½ Mike Henbury

Nobby George 0 – 1 Don Creasey

Geoffrey Parish 0 – 1 Rose Saunders

Rob Strachan 1 – 0 Steve Saunders

Round 3 pairings are as follows, with players’ current scores in brackets:

  • John Kooner (2) v Don Creasey (1)
  • Rob Sims (1½) v Rose Saunders (1½)
  • Steve Dunleavy (0) v Geoffrey Parish (0)
  • Steve Saunders (0) v Suzan Dunleavy (0)
  • Rob Strachan (2) v Nobby George (1)
  • Keven Lamb (2) v Mike Henbury (1)

As always, the player named first plays white. I am aware that some of you will be playing your third game in a row with the same colours. This will balance out during the course of the tournament.

Deadline for finishing round three games is Saturday 2nd January 2021. As round two finished early it gives us a few extra days to play round three, which is just as well, with Christmas falling in this period.

Enjoy!

Peter

  • Each Round should be completed within 3 weeks, but there can be some flexibility.
  • The games are to be played online – on lichess.org.
  • The time control is 90 minutes each per game.
  • The winner (or white if drawn) should notify Peter of the result.
