Blitz + Crazyhouse + Hand and Brain

On Tuesday 30th November, we played not only one tournament as usually, but three different ones!

We warmed up with a “classical” blitz tournament. Albi won with the points against Paul, Roger, and Dimitris, who had only one point each.

We continued by playing Crazyhouse with all possible pairing. It was a lot of fun.

At the end, we played a few games of Hand-and-Brain.

Rapid Championship: Round 2

Today we had a fun rapid tournament. Until the last round Mauro was leading. In the last round, Mauro experienced his first defeat against Nakul, and Werner took the opportunity with a win against Dimitris, grabbing at the finish line the first position!

SMM game analysis and Rapid tournament

On Tuesday 31st August, we met at GZ Bachwiesen. During the first 30 minutes, until 20:00, we analysed a game from Saturday that was played in the context of SMM. Patric was playing a strong opponent. He had to defend well for several moves until they reached a same color bishop endgame with a lot of pawns that was drawn.

After the game analysis, we played a Rapid tournament. The time control was 10 min. + 5 sec/move with 4 rounds. We have a shared win among three (!) participants: Georg, Patric, and Albi finished on the first place with three points each.

SMM game analysis and Blitz tournament

After almost a month, we met yesterday again at GZ Bachwiesen. During the first 30 minutes, until 20:00 we analysed two games from Monday that were played in the context of SMM. Roger had a long game (almost 70 moves!) against a strong opponent. Chris on the other hand reached a very sharp position quickly.

After the game analysis, we played a Blitz tournament. The time control was 5 min. + 3 sec/move. Jaroslaw won convincingly the first place, having beaten all of his opponents.

Almost at the same time, we had an online presence. Some strong players from our club chose to participate to the Swiss L3 Team Battle. The team, despite being one player short, did quite well.

On the coming Tuesday, we plan to play again at the GZ Bachwiesen. We hope to see you there.
