2nd Orpington Tournament Results - Shlok defends title

Shlok Verma was again victorious in the Bishop section of the 2nd Orpington Junior Tournament and Training Day (OJCTATD!). However, this time he was taken to a play-off finish against Marius Kobler.

We videoed the game (in case it turned violent) and will upload that once we have edited it.

The reigning champion of the Knights was promoted to the Bishop section and unable to defend his championship. Instead, Alex was our new winner, scoring 4/4. Ievan was also undefeated, but a half-point bye in the first round meant he missed out on first place!

Congratulations to everyone who took part and thanks to the kitchen, the coaches and most of all to Jo for her invaluable work as tournament director.

We hope our next event will take place in early December as practice for the London Junior Championships. In the meantime, I will be running weekly clubs in Shortlands (Thursdays), as well as Blackheath and Coney Hall on weekends. Let me know if you are interested.
