The Players’ Cup and Bill Laar Trophy 2016

TrophyEach year, Cumnor Chess Club holds two tournaments: The Players’ Cup and the Bill Laar Trophy. As the leaves have just started to fall from the trees and the nights are drawing in the tournaments are entering their final straight. With only (!) 15 Thursdays left in the year its now a good time to take stock of the standings.

Currently top of the Players’ Cup is Gareth, last night himself and Daniel battled out a great game. Mark remains in second place as the only unbeaten player so far, with myself in third, level on points with Mark but I have a worse head-to-head.

David is storming away in the Bill Laar Trophy, last night he beat Marc with Black and now sits with 4 wins from 4.

Take a look here to read more about the two tournaments.
