Fuatai Club Open Champion 2021

Posted: 12/05/2021 by Ian in Club News

Congratulations to Fuatai who is club open champion for 2021. With one round to go and a score of 5-0 Fuatai has an unassailable lead. Other players could potentially draw alongside on the score sheet if Fuatai loses the next round, but would not come out in front based on the first tiebreak (direct encounter). Well done Fuatai. Other players continue to tussle for the silver and bronze. See you next week.

Winter Rapid In Two Divisions

Posted: 02/05/2021 by Ian in Club News

After the club champs we will have Winter Rapid A and if numbers allow this will be run in two divisions based on club rating (the All-Stars and the Candidates). Time control will be 25+0 two games per night over three weeks. All-Stars will consist of the top eight rated players present on the first night that commit to turning up for the 3 weeks. Candidates will be the unwashed rest. If the format works then Winter Rapid B will look the same with the exception of promotion relegation such that the losing two AllStars will be replaced by top two Candidates (irrespective of club rating). So Candidates can play for the glory of moving up, and AllStars need to avoid the disgrace of being sent back to economy class [the shame of it!]. For the format to work we will need at least 16 players to turn up for round 1 of each rapid.
