Summer tournament Awards

Wednesday 24th September saw the Summer tournament Prize giving and an active play handicap. Where players are awarded more time depending on the difference of rating with their opponent. A fast and furious competition....who would win?

The evening started with the placing on the wall of round 1 pairings and a list of rating differences and a split time of 20mins between the two players ie rating difference 261-390 giving a time difference of 15mins to 5 mins.

After the quick play fun. Geoff Hindley UCU President handed-out the Certificates and prizes (including tickets to next years Simultaneous). The Summer tournament had been another success with plenty of chess, sacrifices, brilliant end-games and magnifient blunders and one or two slow draws. A fantastic way to spend a summer.....
