Penwith Club Championship 2017/18

The 2018 Penwith Club Championship was a six-round Swiss rapidplay tournament, played over three consecutive Tuesday evenings in January and February. The event was played with great fighting spirit, there being only one draw in the 32 contested games! The new club champion is Ian George, scoring 5/6 in a welcome return to tournament play, and winning on tie-break from David Saqui, who had the satisfaction of being the only player to beat Ian (with an entertaining seconds-to-spare mate from an apparently lost position, [completely lost, more like! - IG]). My particular thanks to Mark Watkins, who controlled the tournament with a perfect touch.
