TAFCA ALLEGRO CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES 2020-21 (Kirkcaldy)
The 3rd TAFCA Allegro Championship night took place on Wed 6th Jan 21 at 7:30pm (Kirkcaldy Club Night). On the night up for grabs was the “TAFCA Kirkcaldy Allegro Championship”! We had 35 players taking part in a 5 round Swiss, 15 minutes each player. Castlehill were once again the club with the most players taking part (Thank you again!) Points were available for the TAFCA Allegro Championship Series (this is the 3rd of 6 events in total) and the J.R.Chalmers Grand Prix Memorial (More info on TAFCA Website).
It was another fantastic night’s chess and Castlehill Chess Club Dundee is over the moon as not only did we have the most players once again entered, we have a champion!
Congratulations to Andre Babin (Castlehill) on becoming the TAFCA Kirkcaldy Allegro Champion 2020-21! Not only that, he won all 5 matches, all be it a hell of a time scramble in the last match! This is Andre`s second title this season having become the TAFCA Newport Allegro Champion 2020-21 in November 20!
Andy Rowe & Richard Kynoch (both Castlehill) finished in equal 2nd place on 4 points (well done Andy & Richard!) with 3 other players all from St.Andrews Uni (Alexandre Kings, Sam Herring & Wilf Wheatley!)
