Online chess so far

The first online tournament organised by the Oxfordshire chess association was held in the Autumn term. Uni 1 were the runaway winners, fielding a very strong team throughout. City 1 finished mid table, with narrow losses in the last 2 rounds after a strong start. City 2 were the underdogs in most of their games but picked up a win and a draw to finish off the bottom.

Top performers were Jon Manley for City 1 with 5/6 and Jan Murawski for City 2 with 3/4, so well done to you, also a big thanks to our captains Sean Terry and Andy Bell for all their work to enable us to enjoy the chess.

The second tournament will start next week and we’ll be competing as before. New members would be very welcome to participate in our teams, send a message if you’d be interested.
