RESULTS: The Inaugural London Chess Centre Blitz, 13th August 2009 at Loose Cannons EC4

A fantastic venue for this inaugural blitz chess event and an international field which included four masters and a grandmaster, as well as many strong county players, and club regulars.  Five games of 10 minute chess were enough to separate the field and when the dust cleared, the scores were as follows;

4.5/5 - Grandmaster Aaron Summerscale £60
4/5 - David Zakarian, FIDE Master Charlie Storey, James Coleman, David Moskovic £10 each and a book prize
3.5/5 - John Reid, International Master (IM) Karl Mah, Albert Ballardini, (book prizes)
3/5 - James McDonnell, IM Eddie Dearing, Richard Almond, IM Malcolm Pein, Calance Smith, Peter Vas
2.5/5 - Akshaya Ahuja (Junior book prize), John Foley, Ivan Lunt, Phil Goldstein
2/5 - Anup Desai, (Junior book prize), Claire Summerscale (book prize), Barosz Jedrzejewski, Steve Blewitt, Jimmy Jiang, Paulus Du Buf, Dilshod, Rajko Vujatovic, Jeff Goldberg, Tim Woolgar
1.5/5 - Faye Ainscow (book prize), Petr Vachtfeidl
1/5 - Shum Ghumman, Shaun Tracey
0/5 - Sarah Patterson (first-timer book prize), Sascha Wandkowsky, Razan Ragazan

We hope to have many events here in the future!

Best wishes

Here is a list of FIDE registered tournaments in England. There will be a separate entry for each section of each event (e.g. Golders Green Rapidplay = 4 sections, 4 registrations). If you see any of mine missing, do let me know! 

Scroll down to the bottom to access the archive of events. 

Only games where at least one of the players has a published standard FIDE rating will be rated, and included in the rating calculations of the unrated player. Where both players are rated, the game will affect both players and will be included in the calculations for both players.
