2015 SSCC Christmas Blitz Tournament

Tuesday 15th December was the final night of the club's year. Players shared some food and participated in a 9 round blitz tournament to celebrate a successful and exciting first year for the club. As is always the case at SSCC, the tournament atmosphere was a friendly one. This particular tournament was played in the true Christmas spirit. Nevertheless, it was a battle of attrition on the top boards, with the top seeds all seeming to lose points to one another.

Congratulations to the winners: Andrew Hardegen and Piotr Kowalczyk (7/9).
