Mike Forster wins Lightning


Congratulations to Mike Forster who snatched the title in a tense final game having drawn at first with James Mansson. Paul Taylor came third with Chris Heath fourth...more to follow tomorrow...

There were a total of 32 players and we all had some fun. Like others I managed to blunder a rook and end up drawing a position three pawns up!

Thanks for everyone for making a special effort to get their earlier than usual and I hope you all had the opportunity to play some different people.

Special apologies to those who suffered at the hands of the dreaded five second per move tiebreaker.

Great fun all round..
