For Hackney blitzers, the only way is Chessex!
Nick Walker reports on an excellent showing by Hackney at the Essex Chess Association Tream Bitz.
Hackney won the Essex Chess Association team blitz with 24.5/32 game points on Sunday 1 July. As a non-Essex team (although we are of course affiliated to ECA) we were ineligible for the trophy which was taken by Barking, who came second, 3 points adrift. Jochen Wittmann won the board 3 board prize and Richard Britton and Nick Walker each took a share of the prize for board 1 and 2 respectively. Chris Levy put in a good performance on bottom board as well.
