Club Championship prizes 2012/13

With thanks to all of you who have participated this year, an all-time record for the number of entries (44), and to the generosity of the Hon. Treasurer in allocating the vast majority of the entry fees to the prize fund, I am pleased to announce the following Club Championship prizes:


Champion       Championship Trophy & Retention Plaque with the right to play Board 1 for first teams in 2013/2014

Second           £20

Third               £10

Grading Prizes:   4 sections this year      £10 each for best placed finish in:

130 to U151   (8 players in 17 point range)

111 to U130   (9 players in 18 point range)

85 to U111     (8 players in 17 point range)

U85               (9 players in 35 point range)

Committee Awards:  2 new prizes this year: £10 each in the opinion of the Committee for

a)    the best overall Junior performance relative to starting grade/estimate

b)   the Champagne Moment of the Tournament (round stages)

The Champagne Moment is intended to reward the best or most entertaining one-off individual performance which may present it itself in any number of ways.  Examples by way of illustration could be the biggest upset, the best game, the best finish to a game (sacrifice, combination), the best swindle.  This is not intended to be an inclusive list, but you should get the idea.

If you think one or more of your games in any of the rounds or part of them would justify popping a cork then please present it to the Tournament Secretary.  Submissions will be posted on the website for peer enjoyment, review & comment, though the ultimate decision will rest with the majority vote of the Committee at its meeting the week after the scheduled round 9.
