The senior blitz (5 minute chess) team event was restricted to 12 years and over, with some guest younger payers to ensure that each team had a full complement of three players. Six teams competed for the Senior title.
Teams were as follows:
|4. Water Rats|
|6. Chess Ireland|
Final results were as follows:
|4. Water Rats||5.5|
|6. Chess Ireland||4|
Team 5. Whatever led ably by Sumukh ran out deserved winners after a close set of matches!
Awards and prizes for these Blitz Chamionships (both Junior and Senior) will be presented at the last Junior meet up of the year (December 14th – our Christmas party!)
Congratulations to all the players in the Senior event. It was a thoroughly enjoyable event and our juniors continue to impress!
