Club well represented in Edinburgh heat of UK Open Blitz Championship 2019

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 …).
