New Milton Christmas Blitz

Chess pieces Christmas

John Belinger reports that the New Milton Chess Club held its annual Yuletide Frolic on Tuesday 13th December. It took the form of seven rounds of blitz chess playing with a time control of 7 minutes plus a 5 second increment from move one.

The result was a three-way tie for first place  between Reenen du Toit, Tim Jones and John Belinger (pictured below), each with 6 points out of 7.

Exhaustion and a lack of time meant there was no time for a play-off and the joint winners were presented with the Mihail Nutu Trophy in memory of Mihail who died in tragic circumstances earlier this year.
