Six players represented Horfield Chess Club in the 2nd Open Blitz Championship on 25th November.
Phil Nendick came 7th scoring 7.5, Derek Pugh 12th with 6.5, . Piotr Zieliński 25th with 6, Peter Marks 47th with 4.5 Kanagasabai Balasubramaniam 56th with 3.0, and Mike Jennings 59th with 2.5. Well done to Phil starting at 17th to finish 7th against such strong opposition and congratulations to Piotr started at 41st and finishing at 25th finishing with a rating performance of 1717. This was achieved with four exceptional wins against stronger opponents Tim Jones (Cabot), Jack Tye(Downend), Aron Saunders (Downend), and Alex Vaughan (University).
Who says your past it at chess by the age of 40. Piotr would beg to differ.
Chess & Curry Night
Chess & Curry Night – The club members will be participating in the seasonal get together on 17th December. It kicks off with a casual blitz session followed up with a visit to a local restaurant where the Horfield members enjoy what is on the menu and indulge in discussing everything from chess to whatever takes their fancy. It’s been a popular event over the years and any new members attending for the fist time will have the opportunity to meet others in a more casual setting.
