New Season stats 2017-18 – John Philpott Trophy

The new season stats for 2017-18 are now available. Apologies for the delay, but the Results program I use for collating the Clubs results needed a major upgrade to incorporate for the first time Rapid games in addition to Standard games. The change was needed to chart results for the John Philpott Trophy, newly inaugurated in memory of our late friend, the inimitable John Philpott.

The new trophy will be awarded to the member securing the highest score in all our Rapid game activities. These run from the summer competitions through to the completion of the following “winter season”. We play a lot of Rapid chess, starting with the Baum Trophy matches and the Essex Knockout in the summer, followed by the Lawrance and Finchley Cups in the winter and our own Rapid Championship in March.

The statistics can be found in the usual place on the ‘About’ menu under the ‘Statistics’ item, then select ‘2017-18’. The index menu for 2017-18 is expanded to indicate two reports in each of the main categories, each bearing a suffix of either “(S)” for Standard games and “(R)” for Rapid games. A separate Grading Performance report is available for each. Bear in mind when reading the Grading Reports that they include games played between 1 July and the following 30 June. Therefore, games played, for example, in May/June (such as the Baum Trophy “Bonanza Night” on 30 May) will not be included in the 2017-18 Grading Report, but of course nonetheless count towards the John Philpott Trophy for 2017-18.

The Statistics file is currently the only place where you will find our match records published, pending the new Club Website being up and running. So bookmark the page – link below – so you can find it easily when you need it. Or just go to the ‘About/Statistics’ menu.
