THURS NIGHT WEEKLY COMPETITION
Arena 20 tournament – Thurs 27th Aug 20
Time-Control: 5 minutes + 3 seconds
Well, well, well Ray Flood opened the “flood” gates and took the field by storm. A rare outing for Ray these days, but one, we all know he has the talent in abundance to do!
In a field of 12 players, including Declan Shafi, Ray was like his old self, playing with flare, confidence and of course a little bit of luck. It was good to see as Ray in resent times has lacked a bit of self-belief and it was good to see him at his best!
Well played Ray Flood!
Declan Shafi, took runner-up spot with that very tricky Subhayu Banerjee in third. Our young master Rishi Vijayakumar J9 finished in 4th place, a fantastic achievement for one so young in a field so strong!
Thank you for supporting this competition and I hope you all enjoyed the night. We do it all again next week (Thurs 3rd Sept).
Once again congratulations Ray Flood, chess from a bygone era back again!
