4th BCA Email Tournament

The 4th BCA Email Tournament is now underway with games having commenced on the 1st of January. The participants are as follows;-

Division 1: Colin Chambers, Philip Doyle, Stephen Hilton, Steve Burnell

Division 2: Stan Lovell, Derek Heyes, Eamonn Casey, Steve Thacker

Division 3: Michael Meaney, Voldi Gailans, John Carroll, Anthony Borg

Division 4: Gill Smith, Iki Nahaboo, Denis Warren, Eli Josebashvili

A couple of the Division 2 games have already finished:

Heyes 1 – 0 Thacker (Sicilian Defence)

Lovell 0 – 1 Heyes (Queen’s Pawn)

Derek Heyes has taken an early lead with two points from two games! Can he win Division 2 outright or will Eamonn Casey manage to stop him?

The tournament is scheduled to finish no later than the end of March so the final results will be published in the May gazette. Once again we are indebted to Eamonn Casey and Philip Doyle for controlling this event.
