BCCA member Peter Catt has won the 2012/14 British Championship – congratulations to Peter! A truly impressive & dominant performance in the Final has seen him score 9½/13 (with one game ongoing as I type these notes) with 6 wins and no defeats. 5 of his wins came with the white pieces and one with black; so only 2 players could manage a draw against him with the black pieces. Also, the 12 BCCA Master points awarded for this win take Peter to 20 BM points & is so awarded the BCCA Master Title. Double congratulations!
Anthony Tolliday has won the section with a perfect score of 4/4 against John Sheriff and Antony Dawkins – well played.
The email tournament is winding down and no new sections will be started. Players should consider the Webserver Trio’s Tournament as an alternative.
Raymond Cox has won the Trio with a perfect score of 4/4 and has been promoted to Class 2 – well played. Raymond has also been awarded 2 BCM points. The other players were John Dunn and John Sheriff.
Congratulations to David Coyne who remains undefeated after his fourth Class 3 Trio with a win in BCCA/C3/Tr6, very well-played Sir. David has been awarded another 3 BCCA Master Points towards his BCCA Master Title. The other players were Graham Pattrick and Phil Beckett. Remember the Trio’s Tournament is a good way to build up your Masters points.
