Full game in just 2 minutes. Fears of pieces flying everywhere and fights and disputes. But all went brilliantly some players have a natural talent for moving pieces fast and in this game thats most of the battle. No time to think just move the pieces.

Dmitry beats John Bradley whilst Tyrone Winter draws against Bernard Jaffa. Adam Fitzsimons primary 4 who enjoys playing fast chess is the youngest in the tournament.
