A good night for some …..

20 November 2019

….. but not for others.

It was the 4th round of the main league tonight. Three of our teams were playing at home – with the usual space restored after last week’s enforced intimacy. Team A were the absentees, playing away at Rose Forgrove.

The A and B teams had every reason to be happy with the outcomes. The C and D teams probably wish the evening had never taken place.

The results were:
~ Team A, playing in Division 1, beat Rose Forgrove A by 3½ to 1½
~ Team B beat clubmates Team D by 4½ to ½
~ Team C, heavily outgraded, lost to promotion-contenders Harrogate by ½ to 4½

British Rapidplay Championships

Limewood was thinly represented at this year’s British Rapidplay Championships, played over 11 rounds at Pudsey Civic Hall on Sat/Sun 23/24 November. Only 3 members of the club were present, as far as we could tell.

Holi was our sole rep in the Intermediate. He ended with 7 points, just half a point away from the prize money. (The outright winner only scored 8½.)

John Light and Alan Riddle competed in the Minor (U121 ECF) and shared the grading prize for Under 94 grades, with 6 points apiece. They started ranked at positions 32 and 34 respectively in a field of 40 and finished (with others) joint 14th. They both received a big cheque – that is, a small amount of money written on a big piece of paper.
