Summer Tournament Update at Week 14

We are well into the Summer Tournament with plenty of brilliant chess - how do people stand....

For the complete details see the tournament results

We have had 14 weeks with 6 weeks remaining followed on Wednesday 27th September by a handicap competition - less time the higher the rating difference and award ceremony.

A quick reminder to players - to qualify you need to play 10 games and there are rules about playing in the last 3 weeks :

Rules
1. Players must complete 10 games to be considered for prizes.
2. If a player does not play in two of the last three rounds they will be assumed to have played and lost 2 games. If they play only one then they will forfeit one game.
3. However if a player has played 14 or more games then they are exempt from rule 2.
4. Scores will be calculated on a percentage basis

The current standings in the three sections - based on the rating at the start of the tournament - or when you entered.

Lower Section:

Looks like a fight-off between new player Ranjit Singh and Barney McGahan.
