Lucy and Chris win blitz Tournaments

Horsham Chess Club is running tournaments on on a weekly basis.

On Sunday we played a Swiss blitz tournament with 3 rounds. Lucy showed her prowess with a convincing 2.5/3 to win the tournament with ease.

On Thursday we tried the hectic Arena format where you get repaired instantly. It was generally agreed to be a lot better with some players getting in as many as 9 games. After the initial rush I managed to grab the lead and held it for the middle of the tournament. But Chris came storming through to snatch the lead and hold of all challengers.

Next week we will be holding another exciting Arena blitz tournament on at 8:10pm. I hope to see you there.
