2023 July Rapid Tournament

Following a successful Blitz tournament in May, Camberley Chess Club held an ECF rated Rapid-play tournament over three consecutive weeks which finished on July 13th.

There were 22 players and some close and exciting finishes.

Julien Shepley was the overall winner with 5.5 points out of 6. Well done Julien!

Great performances by Tural Huseynov in second place with 5 points and Zac Welling in 3rd with 4.5 points. Tim Bland had a very good tournament finishing equal 4th with 4 points.

There were some very good results including all the Junior players with everybody scoring at least 1 point.

We also had a visit from Louise Ashbery (Surrey Heath Borough Council, Heatherside Councillor).

Louise enjoyed seeing the club and is looking at playing chess herself. She later postedĀ onĀ her Facebook account.

The Khyber Cup Rapidplay Tournament is an annual jolly event hosted at a members premise. 2019 sees a revisit to the premise of John Upham in Cove, Farnborough. This is a one-day rapidplay tournament open to all members of Crowthorne & Camberley Chess Clubs.

We play a couple of rounds and then adjourn to The Thatched Cottage for liquid and solid refreshment.

We then stagger back to The Lodge for the remaining three rounds followed by the prize giving.

Junior members are welcome if accompanied.
