The Chandler’s Ford Chess Club Christmas Swiss on Christmas Eve Thursday 24th. Also, the results of Tuesday’s regular Arena online tournament on 22nd December. Next tournament details. And of course, seasons greetings to you!

Tuesday Arena, 22nd December 2020

Christmas Swiss

Thursday’s 5-round Swiss online rapid play tournament was on Christmas Eve. Five of us played, so each had a bye in one of the rounds, and was an all-play-all. Congratulations to winner John Zastapilo (John-zed’). Well done too Kev Lamb 2nd and Steve Saunders third. Whilst fewer players could make playing in the tournament, several chess friends who couldn’t play were able to pop in virtually to wish us all a happy Christmas.

A different one this year – like most of this year. December is usually the time we like to meet up for our Chandler’s Ford Chess Club Christmas Curry (the ‘CFCCCC’) social gathering, which of course was not possible this year due to the COVID-19 situation. The photos in the picture gallery below are from last year, at the Christmas Curry 2019. Click on a picture for full images.

Looking forward to when we can meet in person again. Merry Christmas everyone!
