Siddharth Gopakumar dominates November blitz!

Saturday 5 November, 2022

Our November blitz tournament was won by Siddharth Gopakumar with 5½/6, ahead of a field including WGM Elmira Mirzoeva. Congratulations to him!

He could have been joined by one of the Badacsonyi brothers, but they drew with each other in the final round, which I’m sure will have done wonders for family harmony!

The prize for top Hendon player was jointly won by Domenico Napolitano, Joshua Spybey, Orest Stus and Louis Moss with 4/6.

Many thanks once again to Adam Raoof for organising: see you all next month!
