Quickplay Knockout Winner

In order to finish the Quickplay Knockout , Anthony Higgs and Brian Donnelly had arranged to play their Semi-Final, then for James Mansson to play the winner all on the same club evening. Anthony overcame Brian 2.5-1.5 in a tightly-contested match, before taking James on in the final.

First Winner!


The final of the Quickplay plate took place on Tuesday between Lucy and Zevon.

The fact that this was fought out between two such talented Juniors is excellent in itself. Our congratulations to Zevon who managed to overcome his higher graded opponent.

Well done to both finalists.

Firstly I played Brian Donnelly and despite getting excellent chances in the first game fell easy prey in the second and was despatched 2-0.

Then Anthony Higgs took on Brian...

Next week is the first week of the Knockout proper with the new Fischer time limits to enjoy. I am sure we will all quickly master the clocks!

Quickplay Rounds 1 and 2

Last night saw the start of the Quickplay Knockout competition. The aim was to complete at least the first couple of rounds and this was largely completed, with only the top eighth failing to do so as a consequence of the rearranged D Gray - Z Rustom fixture not being played. Indeed, there were a few people keen enough to play their third round matches as well, so we already have one semi-finalist in the main competition and the plate!
