The last round of this years Summer Tournament was played on Sept 18th 2019 what are the Standings?

The Summer tournament has now played for 21 weeks - A drop in tournament - setup to allow players to play during the Summer months when alot of clubs close. With plenty of exciting chess. Next week we have a fun quick play tournament and award ceremony - all welcome.

As the tournament is a drop-in tournament. The competition is calculated on the percentage of each players points. With a special rule for the last 3 weeks (if you play 14 or more games you are exempt this rule). A player has to play 2 of these 3 weeks and looses a point for each of these 2 games not played. So if you play only 1 in the last 3 weeks you loose 1 point. To qualify for the tournament you must play 10 or more games.

This year we have had some 24 players over a marathon of 21 weeks and total of 144 games.

The final winner was a tight battle between Mark Newman (Me), Ciaran Rowan and Cathal Murphy. Interestingly each player in a different section.

Both Ciaran and Cathal won their games. Ciaran was playing up a section against Roy Stafford who was also playing for a percentage that could give him a second place.

This year we have seen the same faces - players coming every week - and I wish to say many thanks for our regular players who made the competition such a delightful event. Jim McLean attended all the evenings apart from one - 20 weeks. Followed by Roy Stafford 19 weeks, David Ruben and David Seaby 18 weeks. Adrian Dornford-Smith and Stewart McConaghy 17 weeks.

With the final results in and the penalties calculated we have ( you cant win more than one prize - so if the Overall winner is in the Intermediate section then the next highest in that section wins the section ):

The Champion is : Cathal Murphy (77%)

Second Place is : Ciaran Rowan (75%)

Winner of the Senior Section: Mark Newman (70%)

Winner of the Intermediate Section: Roy Stafford (63%)

Winner of the Junior Section: Geoff Hindley (56%)
