The South London teaching day and tournament went ahead today with 24 students and 3 teachers - Andrew Kay, Tim Hunt, and Francis Roads, to whom we are very grateful that they gave up their time for us. Students were split into groups of similar strength and spent some time with each of the teachers in the morning.
In the afternoon was a three round tournament. Students were again split into groups, each of which played a Swiss-style tournament with handicap equal to grade difference. The teachers, plus Paul Smith, played a round-robin tournament.
Tim Hunt won the teachers' tournament.
Winning their sections of the students' tournament with three wins were Natasha Regan, Peter Fisher, and Gerry Gavigan.
All the students on three wins and some on two went away with books for prizes, and we also had two copies of Smartgo Kifu donated by its author to give away, so that people can easily record their games on their iDevices.
We'll run it again next year - I hope to see you there.
