Played on Thursday 21 January there was unexpected success for the club’s first foray into the League of Mayhem’s invitational Team Battle blitz Arenas. With no club tournaments scheduled and a spare Thursday presenting during the second half of the League of Mayhem current season, skipper Peter Nickals entered a team into the league’s fourth Team Battle blitz (G5+3) for league participants, in the guise of our Lichess Arena social team. The previous two events had been won comfortably by favourites King’s Head. 10 teams competed.
Having entered with no expectations amongst anticipated strong blitz opposition it took us all by surprise to find ourselves at the top of the leader board, thanks to the efforts of David Sands (24), David Spearman (16), Ashley Freeman (15) and Istvan Karacsony (12).
