Four round Swiss: 60 minutes + 30 seconds

Well despite the pandemic or maybe because of it, we had a fantastic response to the summer tournament with 26 players taking part in round one. The match night was Mon 10th May, 21, with a few matches played on other nights.

The first round used accelerated pairings as we only have four rounds to get a winner. The rest of the remaining three rounds will be ordinary pairings. Remember it`s 3 points for a win and 1 point for a draw. There were no big upsets as everything more or less went to grading form. Ed Walton (1482) got a draw against Ray Noble (1591), but apart from that nothing to talk about.

The second round draw is up on our website and the match night is Monday 21st June 21, 7;30pm on As we are online and if this date does not suit, players can contact their opponents and rearrange the date and time, as long as it`s played before or by the official match night!


Entries are now being taken for the Bob Dunn Summer tournament 2021. Closing date for entries is Monday 19th April 21. Please checkout the rules tab.
