It was a low-key clubnight tonight with just 3 rounds of blitz games.
After umpteen appearances at 3rd place in the Honours Board, Paul Johnson at last made it to Top Spot by winning all 3 of his games. Philip May made his first appearance in Spot no 2 with 2 wins, separated by tie-break criteria from Junior May who took 3rd position.
Connection problems again bedevilled some games, causing one player to lose his queen as a result of disconnection happening mid-move. But ’tis an ill wind, as the saying goes: his opponent got an unexpected benefit.
