Sutton Coldfield Online Championship Result

Congratulations to Marek Soszynski for winning the inaugural SCCC Online Championship with a score of 26 points from 8 games. Commiserations to Peter Oliver and Larry Hayden who finished second and third respectively.

As I have no official prize to award, Marek will just have to revel in the respect and admiration of his peers. Now that the club is tentatively open, perhaps you could buy him his favourite tipple of Newcastle Brown Ale if you see him!

Over 20 games were played between members in the championship, but it is perhaps telling that I stopped receiving any results right around the time Minworth Club and Lodge re-opened! Clearly our members have been yearning for the return of OTB chess and (hopefully) this means I will be out of a job!

Stay safe, I hope to see you all after I’ve had my second jab!

Neil – SCCC Online Director

The week 4 table now sees the addition of movement chevrons to denote weekly changes in the table! Larry has been knocked off top spot this week by Marek, who’s approach of more is more with the most games played; is serving him well. After a slow start John is the biggest riser this week, whilst Peter has knocked Steven down into 4th place.

What will week 5 bring? Will John continue his march up the table? Will Marek keep his perch atop the table or will Larry regain it? And no one should be writing off dark horse Peter Oliver in 3rd! It would also be nice to get some new names onto the ladder, as such I’m officially throwing my hat in the ring, if you see me online feel free to challenge me!

The Week 2 table of the Online Championship is in, with a new leader sitting atop of the table. Club stalwart Larry has stormed to the top of the leaderboard after impressive wins against Marek and Dwight. Will he still be sitting pretty by next week?

If you think anything is wrong in the table or you have forgotten to send me some results, let me know in the usual ways!
