If any of you are interested, Wellington Chess Club are holding a Blitz Tournament on Wednesday 1st August 2018 at 19:30 (sharp!)
This is the third year that Wellington have hosted this competition, and last year’s winner Chris McKinley from the Sedgemoor club is expected to attempt to retain the trophy which he won narrowly last season.
Wellington are hoping to attract other contestants from Sedgemoor and Taunton club. Each contestant will play five matches with ten minutes allowed for each player to complete all his moves and as the evening progresses those with most wins will be matched against each other. Wellington’s Alex Conway, Jon Duckham and Simon Pickard will be expected to be in contention for the home team.
Chris McKinley will be sure to make a strong defence of his trophy but everybody will need to be wary of Sedgemoor’s Lander Arrasate who had such a fine season last year leading Wellington’s Division 1 team and will be a formidable opponent for anybody aiming to win the trophy.
Hope to see you there.
