Fisherwick Tournament Report

Fisherwick Chess Club ran a go-as-you-please tournament throughout the winter months.

Competitors had to play at least 10 games to be eligible for a prize, with the prizes going to those with the best percentage scores. The time limit was each player having 1 hour 15 minutes for all moves. The tournament was a very closely fought affair. Gareth Annesley was leading gouing into the final night, when he was beaten by Desmond Moreland. Nicholas Pilkiewixz, last year's champion, beat Jim McLean to win the tournament. Meanwhile Robin Triggs beat Paul McLoughlin to wrest the runner-up spot from Ian Davis. The latter had to be content with a grading Prize but the luckless Annesley ended out of the prize list altogether. Also a bit unlucky was Desmond Moreland, who only played 9 games. He wanted to play 2 games in the final night to give himself a chance of a prize, but there simply wasn't enough time.
