14 members took part in Limewood’s very first online tournament tonight.
This first venture was just members-only so as to make sure the technology worked before we take on external opponents. It was a 6-rounds Swiss competition with each player having 15 minutes on the clock.
The winners were:
1st: John Grasham (5 points out of 6)
2nd: Tom Leah (4.5 points)
3rd: Paul Brencher (4 points)
