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!

NCA Rapidplay

Posted by northman on December 9, 2019

Tynedale were well represented at the NCA Rapidplay help in Forest Hall yesterday. Jonny, Dave H and Peter participated scoring 3/6, 2.5/6, and 2.5/6 respectively. Jonny (still ungraded) and Dave H (graded 99 but who came agonisingly close to scoring 50% against opponents with an average grade of 144) deserve particular mention for their efforts. It was an open event with a wide range of abilities playing in the same section which was highlighted by Peter meeting opponents graded 35 and 211 in consecutive rounds.
