A late rush of entries (as usual!) at our last major tournament for the year has resulted in the venue almost reaching capacity. 294 players competed at the Xmas Swiss Chess Challenge, and almost everyone stayed until the finish. It was a long day of chess, so congratulations to all of the players and parents who drove their children and supported them throughout the day.
Thanks to all of the arbiters and helpers on the day who made this a great event once again. Well done to the new Xmas Swiss Chess Champion - Georgios Andromedas, who scored a picket fence 8/8! Hte will be earning himself a lot of rating points after this tournament.
