Just a short article tonight... This evening, we had two events - a Blitz event with 5 minutes on the clock each and an additional 1 second a move, and a Bullet event with 3 minutes each and an additional 3 seconds a move.
The Blitz produced plenty of very close finishes, with games going to the last seconds, so victories were hard fought and well earned. No fewer than 4 players won 3 games from 4, so it was a very tight event. WiseCrabbyCoconut took the plaudits by beating Rowantree in the final round and won the event on tiebreak score. ZanyHummingBook was runner up, again on tiebreak score, with Precho and Rowantree completing the top four, both also scoring 3/4. Well played to all who entered.

3rd equal: Precho & Rowantree
The Bullet event was also extremely close, and this time we had a three way tie at the top, with three players on three out of four. On this occasion Rowantree, having lost in the first round to an excellent OvalCuteSnail, scraped through to victory with a final round win again AbleLopsidedGiraffe and won on tiebreak score. MadWiryTank performed extremely well to come second on tiebreak score, including an excellent win ion the final round. AbleLopsidedGiraffe also had an excellent evening and looked set to win the event going into the final round, only to miss out due to the last gasp win by RowanTree. Well played to these and all who entered.
