Online tournament results 6th October

Twelve of us took part in this week’s weekly online ‘Arena’ online tournament on 6th October on lichess.org. Congratulations to David Culliford (djc202) who won this week’s Tournament. Well done too Don Creasey 2nd and Joseph Henbury 3rd.

Looking at the standings above, Joe and John had the same number of points – and in the same order. The lichess system does show a Performance statistic though, and can tie-break from that.

5-round Swiss 8th October results

Eight of us played in this tournament. Congratulations to Joseph Henbury who won this week, and well done Graham Stuart who came second and Rose Saunders who was third. Rose is a regular tournament player but this was her first time on the ‘podium’: well done Rose!
