TAFCA ALLEGRO CHAMPIONSHIP (Kirkcaldy – part 5)
Wednesday 27th March 2019.
This was the last in a series of 5 events to crown the TAFCA Allegro Champion 2018-19. Also at stake was the 1st ever TAFCA Allegro Kirkcaldy Champion.
A fantastic 25 players made it to Kirkcaldy Chess Club at the St.Clair Tavern. It was a near perfect venue for chess and the buffet that was laid on was out of this world! A big, big thank you to Kirkcaldy Chess Club and St.Clair Tavern for their hosting and the great spread.
Alastair Dawson going into the last night was leading the TAFCA Allegro Championship overall on 11 points, 2 clear of the chasing pack on 9 points (Paul & Declan Shafi). In 4th place was Andy Rowe & Euan Dawson on 8 points. Now as luck would have it for Alastair, none of the above players were playing tonight!
Did Alastair do enough to be champion? Did someone sneak past him? Or was there another twist? Who became Kirkcaldy Champion?
