HUGE TURNOUT AT LKA BLITZ

A whoping 93 participants graced the Lim Kok Ann Memorial Blitz event yesterday held at the Bishan CC hall from 2 to 6pm. This is quite unprecedented compared to previous editions of the event.

This is the first time incremental time control of 3 mins with 2 sec increment was introduced in the local chess scene.

The event was won by GM Bong Villamayor on 9 pts followed by IM Enrique Paciencia. A photo:


We've got feedback from some adult players to do this on a regular basis. Guess its up to the CC chess clubs to work on this, or go join the Asia Square chess meetup on Wednesdays.
