Clash of the Champions

Ulster Blitz Championship

As we approach Christmas, the excitement around the Ulster blitz Championship continues to build.


Who will win the coveted Jamison Cup.


Former British u18 Champion (Dundee 1993) Stephen Gillen is not letting his brother Adrian take all the plaudits as he returns to do battle. Your author has deep empathy with this position as he has a brother called Adrian too.


It will be great to see Adrian and Stephen back for the tournament. But have they still got the skills to hold off the local hungry and blitz sharp players.


The returning Champion Robbie Wright is keen to hold onto the overall win and kudos of Champion. The returning Ross du Berry, who pushed him to the end last year is keen to build on last year’s plaudits.


There can be no excuses, blitz chess is booming. Have you got the bravery to take on the stellar field below.

18 rounds, FIDE Rated, £12, it’s a bargain.
