The Alan Burns Series continued at a slower pace. Photos and results.

On Sunday March 22nd at the Civil Service Maynard Sinclair Pavilion, after a delicious lunch with some good chat and excellent company. The speed of the chess was brought down a peg for the third tournament. We had 5 rounds with time limit of 20mins and 5 sec increment for each player.

Nicholas Pilkiewicz is the person to beat. Having won all of these this season in fact not only winning them but having only dropped 1/2 a point. Would he maintain his supremacy.

Interestingly Black won every game of the last round. and went almost with rating apart from Richard Gould beating Niall Troughton. And again Nicholas Pilkiewicz won the tournament. With Patrick McKillen receiving the under 1400 rating prize.

Thanks to all the players for playing such interesting chess and having a thoroughly lacksidasical fun afternoon of play.
