North Belfast Handicap Rapidplay 2009

After the UCU Summer Tournament ends each year, it is customary to hold the prizegiving the following week alongside a rapidplay handicap tournament.
North Belfast Handicap Rapidplay 2009

Prizewinners (l to r) Murphy, Holmes and Lavery

This year was no different and 20 players turned out at North Belfast Chess Club for a five round swiss. Total time on the clock in each game was 20 minutes with players handicapped according to the difference in their ratings, calculated on the Seaby scale.

Damien Lavery won his first four games and a draw in the final round against Michael Holmes (who had earlier dropped a half-point to Martin Kelly) was enough to secure overall victory. Holmes was joined on 4 points by Cathal Murphy, whose only loss came in the first round to Lavery.
