For those of you not present this week the following is the format of the club blitz championship. Swiss tournament, 6 rounds per night at time control  5 + 3. Players will be able to accumulate a maximum of 6 points per night. The winner will be the individual with the most points. In the case of a tied score, the winner will be decided based on the individual game scores between the contestants over the 4 weeks of the tournament. The highest scoring player will be awarded the title of Club Blitz Champion and will have their name immortalized on our championship board. The title of Club Blitz Champion (reserve board), also immortalized as above, will be awarded to the highest scoring player whose club ranking was pawn, knight, or bishop at the start of the tournament. Players can take a bye in one week and receive 3 points. No byes in the final round.
