CASTLEHILL ONLINE THURS NIGHT TOURNAMENT
Thurs 21st May 2020 – lichess.org
Another great nights chess with Castlehill on-line. This week we played Rapid (5 minutes+3 seconds increments), Arena format, with the tournament lasting 1 hour and 30 minutes.
A fantastic 19 players took part and we had some cracking matches with some very good finishes (with the help of opponent!)
The young pretender won again! (Declan Shafi) While the old Terrydactil (Alastair Dawson) finished runner-up.
Ray Noble had a better tournament this week winning 4 of his first six matches! He was out graded all night and when he hit the big guns, in his last 3 matches, he crashed big time, losing all 3. The only complaint he had, was he won his last match but it did not count as the 1 hour and 30 minutes had elapsed. I think if you start a match before the allotted time is finished, you should be allowed to finish it and count towards the tournament. That said it is what it is and also a great nights chess!
Here is one of Ray`s games; Each player had 5 minutes+ 3 second increments.
A big thank you to Declan Shafi for running the tournament and keeping us up to date on all aspects of the competition and lichess.org.
