Online Tournament results 15th ,17th December
Tuesday Arena, 15th December 2020
15 of us participated in this week’s Arena Tournament on Tuesday 15th December, online at lichess.org, a great turnout. Congratulations to Keith Gregory (‘KeithDFG’), who came first – with a wide margin. Well done too David Culliford (‘djc202’) 2nd, and Mike Henbury (‘Ewokmike’) 3rd.
5-Round Swiss, 17th December: tight at the top
Eleven of us played in the 5-round Swiss on 17th December. Congratulations to Graham Stuart (‘WillHeSac’) for winning a tightly-contested tournament. Patrick Pavey who was second, had won as many games as Graham, and so had the same number of points – and the same ‘Tie Break’ scores . The system had to delve deeper to distinguish their podium positions: Graham had a tournament grade performance of 1978 compared to Patrick’s 1950. Close at the top! Well done too Joe Henbury who came third.
