Last Week Before Winter Break – Next Week Christmas Blitz

December 9th, 2013

Next Saturday will be our last club meeting this year. We welcome all members, from Sheung Wan and Discovery Bay, to join at 1.30pm in Discovery Bay to play a mini internal tournament with small Christmas presents for all. Mark your calendar!

Last Saturday in Discovery Bay we had 13 players in the beginners/intermediate group playing a 10 mins blitz round robin and in the advanced group we played the next round in the competition.

In the B group Kian had 4 straight wins, followed by Saga with 3 points and with Kaya, Chris and Noah following.

Ian was the convincing winner in the A section this week with 5 straight wins, followed by Jay and Maximilien each with 3 points. Jaewon, Alex and Wo Hang were next to follow.

In the Advanced group we welcome Aravind, our new chess coach, to the competition, drawing against Miguel Angel. James lost his undefeated status against Koji who now has become a serious contender for the championship. Chor Wei lost against Richard but he did not give in easily at all. Mei Jing, finally, beat Maxwell to conquer 3rd place for now.

All results will be put in the “Keizer System” we will be using from next January on for pairing and ranking.

On Sunday in Sheung Wan, after having done some puzzles, Ray, Marcus, Ritvik, Arjun, Miguel Angel and Mei Jing played some casual chess – we look forward to seeing members in this group come regularly as to have a good base to start a competition from 2014 on.
