Ringwood Rapidplay Report


The first Ringwood Rapidplay tournament took place on Sunday 18th June at Greyfriars Community Centre.

There was a full house with 24 competitors in the Open section and 37 competitors in the Intermediate (under 1800) section battling it out over 6 rounds with a time limit of 15 minutes + 10 seconds.

The total prize fund was increased from the originally advertised £450 to £570.

There were free drinks all day and food was provided at a modest cost, with vegetarian and vegan options available.

Main Prize Winners

Open Section

In joint 1st place, each winning £60, were Mike Duggan, Nwachukwu Okoli and John Weatherlake with 4.5/6.

Intermediate Section (Under 1800)

In 1st place, winning £100, was Lewis Jackson who scored a very impressive 5.5/6.

In 2nd place, winning £50, was Finn Schell who led for the first four rounds and finished on 5/6.

3rd place was shared between Phil Pinto (pictured below), Niclas Hordnes (pictured below) and Alan Wykes who scored 4.5/6.  As Alan qualified for a rating prize that was more valuable than a share of 3rd prize, Phil and Nicals split third prize with £15 each.
