In addition to the exhilaration of the tournament, we’re pleased to announce that each week, we will be updating the round results on our website and social media platforms. This will keep everyone informed about the progression of the tournament, match outcomes, and player standings.

Furthermore, James Harrison, who also runs our popular Improvers Club earlier in the evening, will be providing annotated games throughout the tournament. This provides an opportunity for participants and spectators alike to gain valuable insights into various strategies and tactics. Other players are also invited to share their annotated games, offering an inclusive learning platform for all.

We encourage everyone to join us in this celebration of chess, whether you are participating in the tournament or just spectating. For our players, may the best strategies win, and may the spirit of fair play and sportsmanship guide all games. Checkmate to the boredom of summer and let the games begin!
