20th Inter-County Division 1 Team Battle
Ten teams from across the country registered for the online event on lichess.org, and the Hampshire Junior Chess Association is one of them. 154 players participated in the tournament on Monday 2nd August.
The event was online on lichess.org, and the format a Team Battle. Basically, the individuals’ scores count towards their respective teams in an online tournament. The time control is in the blitz category: quick games of 5+3 (5minutes per player per game, plus a 3-second increment for each move made). With a tournament length of an hour and a half, it would have been quite an intense event requiring a lot of concentration and quick decisions in every game.
The Hampshire Junior Chess Association lichess.org team came 5th with 151 points. The winners were KJCA (Kent Juniors).
