Blitz results

The last round of the Rathmines blitz tournament was held last night, March 18th. There was a large turnout of 19 players for the nine games, including one new player, Steve Song. The main interest was over the destination of the top prize for winner of the senior section. Mindaugas was a clear 2 ½ points ahead of Jack Killane heading into the final round after two very impressive 8/9 points in the previous two rounds. In the end, Jack pulled off a remarkable performance of 8/9 points, while Mindaugas slipped to 6/9. However, despite this tremendous last round performance, Mindaugas’s lead was just enough to win the overall contest by a slim ½ point margin.

On the night, Jack won the event alongside Tony Scannell, both on 8/9, followed by Darren McCabe on 7. Ciaran Byrne scored a very solid 6 points to tie for 4-5th with Mindaugas and also to clinch the intermediate section from John Maher, who had been leading going into the last round. Ed Cunningham won the junior section with an overall score of 13, which would have put him third in the intermediate section – a very strong showing.

Prizes for the winners will be presented at the AGM, held in August/September sometime. Congratulations!
