THURS NIGHT QUICK-PLAY
26/08/21 – Arena 64
Time-Control – 5 minutes + 2 seconds
Congratulations to Euan Murray who went one better than last week, finishing top of the podium on,13 points! This is Euan`s 8th time standing on top of the podium and this on top of his win on board one for Dundee City D in division five of the 4NCL on Tuesday past!
It was a close competition as 2nd placed Richard Kynoch finished on 12 points only one point behind! This is the 7th time Richard has finished runner-up in this format. Richard was also playing in the 4NCL for Dundee City B in division three, but lost to GM John Nunn, a former British Chess Champion, Olympiad gold medal winner and 3 times chess puzzle word champion! What an honour to play someone like that!
Only two points separated the top three places as CM Graham Mooney fresh from his win for Jersey in the Chess Olympiad finished 3rd on 11 points having played only 7 games!
Ramit Kanodia J14 finished in 4th place and was also the top junior for the 5th time in a row, a remarkable achievement! This is also the 23rd time Ramit has finished top junior in this format! Well played Ramit!
In total 13 players took part some for the first time! As you can see by the top three finishers, this was a strong field in depth. I think it was a closer competition without the double points rule.
Thank you to all who took part and let’s do it all again next week!
