Medal Tournament Results

BCCA starting its first Medal tournaments in February/March 2011. Interest was high with 49 players entering in total, split into 27 by webserver and 22 by post. Entries are increasing year on year and 2014 saw 66 entries (51 webserver, 15 post). With only the winner of the tournament receiving a medal, competition has been very keen and winning games is at a premium – too many draws will not win such a tournament. This means aggressive risky play can be rewarded which encourages interesting chess. Medal Winners were as follows:-
