Dorchester C.C. New Year Lightning Tournament

Dorchester C.C. New Year Lightning Tournament

Geoff Searing reports on Dorchester Chess Club’s lightning tournament…

Dorchester Chess Club were pleased to be able to start the second half of the season with their traditional New Year lightning tournament last Thursday (6th). 10 players enjoyed an all-play-all tournament at 10 seconds per move. The contest was close throughout with four players in contention at the start of the last round. Andy Footner won his final game to finish clear of Chris Webb, David Hardie and Simon Gill-Martin who all tied for second place with Franz Pittman a very close 5th. Congratulations to Andy and to all who took part.

Regards and best wishes for 2022.
