Rounds 1 and 2 of the Club Online Rapid Championship (G20+10) were played tonight, with three players winning both games, David Spearman, Peter McCarron and Ian Hunnable.
There was one upset result, in Round 1, when Jay defeated Ashley. Also in R1, there was an interesting ending in Matthias’ game against Michael Wilson; Michael went on to win, but Matthias might have done better with 71 Ra3! In R2 Alex held John Hodgson to a draw. All 16 games are given below, with thanks to Mark Murrell for collecting them.
