Our final blitz tournament of the season was won by Stanley Badacsonyi with a perfect score of 6/6! He defeated his main rating rival Connor Clarke in the fourth round, ensuring that he won by a full point.

Stanley has entered seven of the twelve blitz tournaments we have held this year, and won five of them, more wins than any other player. A very impressive feat – congratulations to him!

Ethan Sanitt was top Hendon member with 4½/6.

Thanks to everyone who played, and to Adam Raoof for organising!
