The Scotland heat of the UK Open Blitz was held in spacious surroundings at Broughton School in Edinburgh on September 7. This was a FIDE rated tournament with each player having 3 minutes on the clock plus 2 seconds per move – very tough!
The event was jointly won by IM Andrew Greet and GM Justin Tan who both scored 13/15. Willie Rutherford was the top player from the club coming in 25th with an excellent score of 8/15.
Other members playing included Mike & Ben Ridge, Calum Mcgillivray and Ian Whittaker (who was in close contention for the wooden spoon …).
