Next Online Open arena: Wednesday, normal blitz + Semi-Tarrasch theme.

17 players took part last Wednesday’s evening 3+3 blitz and 5+3 Ruy Lopez themed events, including several players from the Southampton league – indeed the blitz was won by Keith Gregory (pictured). Friday and Saturday afternoon events were more modestly attended, but even here the numbers were up slightly at 11 and 7 respectively. All the events ran very smoothly, with no repeat of the previous Saturday’s server problems.

Please join lichess and the relevant lichess “team” in advance if you wish to participate in any of these events.
