2023 Junior Blitz
We ran the 2023 Junior Blitz Tournament on Thursday 17th August.
It was a very successful and enjoyable event, with 18 juniors playing 6 rounds of ECF Blitz rated games.
The time control was 5 minutes plus 3 second increment. This made for some exciting and fast chess games, with some players winning on time or winning after their opponent made a couple of illegal moves.
It was a close run tournament with all players scoring at least one win.
In equal 3rd place on 4 points were Adam, Pavith and Imandi. Imandi was the overall third place winner on the tie-break system.
In 2nd place was Arthur with 4.5 out of 6.
The clear winner with 6 wins out of 6 was Aditya.
Will done to everyone who played, to the winners and to the organisers and members who helped on the evening.
