Quiet evening?

25 November 2010

Having occupied 2 of the 3 top places last week, Limewood members clearly decided to give the other clubs an easier time this week, providing only 3 of the contest’s 18 players. Result: you have to go quite a long way down the finishing list to find the first Limey.

This event being played under LiChess Arena rules, you got a new opponent as soon as you ended a game – no waiting for the round to finish. So players who won (or lost) their games very quickly racked up more games than those who played at a more placid rate. Three players each completed 12 or more games (24 in one case), between them accounting for over half the total number played while various others only managed to complete six or seven.
