Bon Accord Beats Bath University 7-1

Bon Accord has entered 2020 Chess (https://www.ecforum.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=2&p=242355&sid=c987f129ac68208819cd46fc6a79f2e0#p242355 ), a UK wide online tournament (with one German team).

The first round was held tonight and we won 7-1 (3.5-0.5, 3.5-0.5) against Bath University chess club.

The results were as follows:

1.Murad Abdulla  1.5  – 0.5 Arda Cayonlu

2. Hamish Olson 1.5 – 0.5 Edoardo Mancin

3. Julius Schwartz 2-0 Oliver Whitfield

4.Euan Gray 2-0 Vlad Brebeanu

The next round will be on Wednesday at 7pm. The first tournament in the series concludes a week on Friday (six rounds, Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays 7pm) but this will be a recurring series of tournaments until the crisis has abated.

There are some very strong teams but also some less strong teams – games for all levels.

The time control is a fairly brisk 10 minutes +2 seconds and the games are played on lichess.org /chess.com

It is a minimum of 4 boards but can be more if both captains agree (Bath had 7 players available). Please let me (Hamish) know if you are interested. If there is enough interest I am happy to organise a B (C,D…) team as well.
