  • Cornwall v SC Heimbach-Weis/Neuwied (Germany) - 8/6/2021

    This proved to be a highly enjoyable 90 minutes of Blitz against the strong Heimbach-Weis club from Neuwied in Germany. It was a lichess team battle over 16 boards at a time control of 5'/3". The final result was a win for Heimbach-Weis by 198-136. Given the difference in the average ratings of the teams, this was a better result for Cornwall than expected

    Many thank to Petra Nunn and Robin Kneebone on the Cornwall side and to Christian Fink from Heimbach-Weis for organising. It is clear that everyone had a good time.
