Gambiteer Blitz

Making use of a Tuesday with only a 4 board Essex Minor match in the calendar, Krishna Raikundalia devised and ran a very different kind of handicap tournament from that with which our members are familiar. The handicap was that the stronger player had to play an assigned gambit and the greater the rating differential the more unsound the gambit (though not always as risky).

Class will out: Ashley Freeman won on 6½. His only ½ point dropped was to second place Philip Staniland. For more details click the link…
