Round one Winter Cup
The 2020 Winter Cup got underway this week. This long format tournament was first run last year, and provides a fresh change to the 10 minute rapid online Club battles of recent lockdown months. Round one Swiss tournaments often predictably go to the stronger top half players, but not this week, with two top players, and almost a third, upset. After Round 1, Geoffrey Gunawan, David Scott, John Whibley, Mike O’Rorke, and newcomer John Eccles all came away with a win, and Liam Parkes also joins them with the bye. Full results can be found here.
