ACC New Year’s Blitz

New Year’s Blitz Tournament – January 6

Annex Chess Club kicked off 2014 with a blitz tournament – five double rounds (two games, one as black and one as white, against the same opponent) at a time control of 4+2 (all moves in a total of 4 minutes each, with 2 seconds added before each move).

At the end of the night, Wajdy Shebetah won clear first, young Nicholas Vettese won clear second, and veteran Erik Malmsten tied with our arbiter, Tyler Longo, for third. Congratulations to the winners and good luck to all – in chess as in life – in 2014!

Complete results are posted below.
