What makes the Tuesday evening online Arena Tournaments so interesting is that, one week you’re a winner, and next week you languish at the bottom. Or, as this tournament showed, the reverse. The previous week David Culliford came last, and this week he won! And he won emphatically: as many points as the next two players put together. Congratulations David!
Well done too James Daas who came second, and Rob Sims who was third.
The tournament was a one-hour Arena event on lichess.org. The time control was ten minutes per player per game. There were 11 of us, another great level of participation from the Chandlers Ford Chess Club on lichess.
Next: 5-round Swiss on Thursday 6th August 8pm
The next online club tournament is this Thursday, 6th August, at 8pm. It is a 5-Round Swiss event in which players have 7 minutes plus 3 seconds per move each per game.
