Anthony and Nick win blitz tournaments

Over the last few weeks Horsham Chess Club has been hosting tournaments on on Thursday evenings at 8:10pm, with a time control of 5minutes + 5second increment that is open to all.

Two weeks ago on Thursday it started out as a close race, with Anthony, Chris, Ian, and Nick all in the mix. Nick and Anthony managed to break away and Nick managed to get a 1 point lead, which went down to their final games. They both won so Nick won the tournament with a commendable 6 wins 2 draws and 1 loss.

Last week on Thursday it was all Anthony as he won a remarkable 10 games out of 10 to set a record score of 37 points, a total that's going to be hard to beat! Also, well done to Matt who in his first attempt came a clear second.
