Results & Winners of Blitz Compettition

Thanks again to John Crowley for running the blitz competition. The quick turnaround between rounds could not have been achieved without his trusty laptop and usual efficiency. With 16 players on the last night, there was plenty of work to be done.

Killian Delaney was the outstanding player over the three rounds. His total score of 26.5/27 (just one draw conceded over 27 games!) is a testament to just how strong and consistent he is over the 5-minute format. Kudos to Thomas Gruel for taking that one half-point off Killian!

Second overall was John Crowley with a more-than-decent 19 points, but because he was in the senior section with Killian he receives no prize.

Winner of the second section is the ever-combative and strong blitz player Atanas Khoutev, on 16.5 points. James Osbourne won the junior section with 11 points overall.

On the night, the strongest threat to Killian’s dominance came from Sam Osbourne and Jack Killane. Jack was a rook up with a completely won game until he lost on time. But that’s blitz. I didn’t witness Sam’s game against Killian, but he lost in the end. Myself, Tony, can normally play a decent fast game, but was completely trounced on the night and trailed in on 3 points.
