Wanstead & Woodford Chess Club Blitz Championship takes place on Tuesday 2nd January 2018.

Doors open at 7:15 pm with Round 1 scheduled to start at 7:30 pm. Don’t be late!

A 7 round Swiss at a rate of 8 minutes per player per game and with no handicap – the real thing for this first of the month all Club event.

Reigning Champion – Steve Rix.

Tie break is the Sum of Progressive Scores. This may be varied by the Controller provided it is announced before the start of round 1.

All points scored count towards your total for the Roy Wagstaff Memorial Shield, the award for the most comprehensive performance across the Club’s diverse activities excluding Rapid games.

Ian Hunnable is the appointed Controller for the event. As usual, if you are thinking of playing please register your interest in advance with Ian or myself, so that the tournament software can be populated in advance to save time on the night.

Ian can be contacted by e-mail at Telephone entries to me on 077 1288 1232.

Doors open for registration at 7:15pm. If your plans change or you are delayed en route on the night please contact me on the above number.
