Tournament organiser Peter Przybycin reports on the Book Prize Tournament so far, and announces the player pairings for Round 7 – including some ‘local Derby’ – literally in-house – fixtures…
Round 6 is now complete.
John Kooner maintains his one point lead, but he will play his nearest challenger this coming round. A game worth watching?
Round 7 will also see two domestic battles. No bloodshed please!
I have noticed that Suzan Dunleavy’s play has improved a lot, with no reward as yet, but it will come. She fought well against Keven. Maybe she can break her duck against her husband!

All the best,
- The Book Prize Tournament is an all-play-all contest, so with 12 players that makes 11 Rounds.
- Although players will sometimes play consecutive games with the same colour, each player will end up having played at least 4 games as white.
- Each Round should be completed within 3 weeks, but there can be some flexibility.
- The games are to be played online – on lichess.org.
- The time control is 90 minutes each per game.
- The winner (or white if drawn) should notify Peter of the result.
