Orsen and Byron Win the Banter Blitz

On Friday, December 9th, for the last club night of the year, 17 players entered a blitz night with a twist. Talking at the board was encouraged which gave an advantage to some great blitz banterers and added a new level to the games of others.

Fresh off of a 2nd Place Team finish at the Australian Schools Teams Championships, Byron Morris, kept up his winning ways on the night, winning 8/9 games. Byron lost his only match to Orsen who was cruising to a picket fence when he lost his final round match to reigning GCCC Blitz Champ Ben Skinner, thereby also finishing on 8/9. Junior Cooper finished in 3rd place with an impressive 6.5/9. Our Rating Group of U800 was won by Deniz with a 5/9 result. In all a really fun night of chess was had by all.

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas from the Gold Coast Chess Club!! Our first events start up at the end of January! Tuesday 24th January @ Upper Coomera Centre Friday 27th January @ Fradgley Hall CC, Burleigh Heads for Opening Night Blitz!!

Also New in 2023 Burleigh Junior Club - from Week 3 to Week 10, 5:00-6:30
