Tuesday Arena: the Force is strong with the Ewok
Twelve of us participated this week in the online tournament on 3rd November. Congratulations to Mike Henbury (Ewokmike) on coming first – by a huge margin. Although he didn’t go ‘Berserk’ to score bonus points, the Ewok still ran amok – and won all his games. The Force was clearly with him.
Well done too John Kooner 2nd, and Sam Murphy 3rd.
The Tuesday Arenas are online on lichess.org.
