Christmas rapidplay

Posted by fellman01 on December 23, 2019

This event was held on Thursday December 19th, with 12 club members participating. There were 5 thirty-minute rounds, with the time divided between the two players on a handicap system, meaning that in some cases the weaker player had 27 minutes and the stronger one 3 minutes. Nonetheless the cream still rose to the top, with the 3 strongest players all finishing on 4/5. Tim Wrigley got the nod over son David and Peter Crichton by virtue of some arcane information on Peter’s pairing programme, thus avoiding the need for an Armageddon play-off. Well done, Tim!
