Bernard Bruno Memorial Rapidplay - 24th June 2013

25 players turned up for the 5th Bernard Bruno memorial tournament which marks the end of the season.  6 rounds of 20 minute games, handicapped on time, was the formula. 

It was an enjoyable evening of chess with many games going down to the wire and the new digital clocks were put to good use. Big thanks to Will Graham for his efforts recording results and setting clocks at exceptional speed to keep the competition moving.

Congratulations to Chris on a flawless display to win the tournament comfortably with 6/6. The other places were much more closely contested with Matt just pipping Morgan for second place. Joseph Allin picked-up the Top Junior award on his final appearance at the club as his family are moving to Chichester and we wish him well.
