Buffalo City Chess trials

On Saturday 28 August three members of the Chess team participated in the fifth round of the Buffalo City Chess trials. This took the form of an online tournament using the Swiss Pairing system for matching players of similar strengths that used the open source application Lichess.

The tournament consisted of seven rounds of rapid games using a ten-minute time control with a two second increment. Twenty-one of the best players in the Buffalo City Region met for the event and after seven rounds Antony Baker placed 16th, Dylan Heurlin placed 13th and Khenkethile Marr placed 3rd in the region winning five out of seven games which is a phenomenal result for him.

Well done to everyone who participated in the tournament.
