Club Championship prizes 2014/15

With another good entry, we have been able to retain grading prizes for four graded limited sections as well as for the best relative performance by a Junior other than the new Junior Champion.  There is also just enough for some champagne…..


Champion       Championship Trophy & Retention Plaque with the right to play Board 1 for first teams in 2015/16

Second           £20

Third               £10

Junior Champion    Trophy & Retention Plaque

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

131 to U156   (8 players in 21 point range)

115 to U131   (8 players in 15 point range)

85 to U110     (8 players in 30 point range)

U85               (9 players in 32 point range)

Committee Awards: £10 each in the opinion of the Committee for

a)    the best overall Junior performance other than by the new Junior Champion 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.
