THURS NIGHT WEEKLY ARENA TOURNAMENT
Thurs 22nd Oct 20: 8:10pm to 9: 35pm (Approx)
Congratulations to Declan Shafi on winning tonight’s tournament with a perfect record! Andre Babin took the runners-up spot, just losing out to Declan who beat him in a match!
It`s good to see a lot of past members rejoining us, like Graham Mooney and just tonight, Ognyan Dimchev Kolev (or Oggy to us!). It’s almost like the prodigal son has returned with a fantastic third place finish in a strong field of 16 players. Mind you Oggy likes the quicker chess format!
It’s also good to see our juniors playing, like old hand now Ramit Kanodia, plus our two new sibling recruits, Josh & Noah Dickson. I got challenged by Josh I think, before the competition started and got thumped! Mind you I did not know at first I was playing a chess variant called atomic and I did not have a clue!
Not sure what happened to Doktor Avalanche tonight, but he seemed to be only drifting, rather than flowing down the mountainside!
Once again thank you to all the players that took part and to Declan on two fronts, organising and finishing King of the Hill!
See you all next week for another thrilling night’s chess and of course the obligatory blunders!
