Lockdown Summer Tournament: week3

The competition continues - with a few more players and some challenging chess games. Email me if you wish to join this drop-in competition.

Another wednesday and the challenge of pairing players for some fun chess. I am beginning to get use to the process. Emailing the list of players and then flagging them as available and to be placed in the draw. A player may not sometimes email me confirmation - but having emailed me earlier I would include them in the draw.

At 7:00pm I send out the draw and hopefully the games begin. - or I get contacted about players not appearing on line and I have to chase them....

A fellow player had kindly explained to me how to watch games - so during the evening I watched the games being played - always fun -as you can plan moves and analyse without the responsibility of making a move.

Here are the results

Take care and enjoy your chess.
