The 2nd Elite Armageddon Championships
There are still spaces available for this event and therefore the entry deadline has been extended until 6pm on Thursday evening.
Round One Draw:

Hugh Brechin v FM Alan Tate
Calum MacQueen v Hamish Olson
Jim Doyle v FM Iain Swan
Andrew Green v Mikey Grove
Nigel Chapman v IM Mark Orr
George Neave v Jonathan Livingstone
James Watson v David Oswald
Matthew Lunn v Douglas McKinnon

Full Point Bye - Graeme Kafka

Unfortunately, there is an odd number so there will be a full point bye floating around - if anyone is in Edinburgh over the weekend and would fancy a game against one of the poor souls that is getting the full point bye, do not hesitate to get in touch with me.
Hope it's as good or even better than the last one David! Sorry I couldn't make it Sad
Thanks Andy, hopefully see you at the next one!

The 2nd Elite Armageddon was another great success, with some high quality, entertaining chess and quite a few blunders too (including yours truly, who fell for a cheeky queen sacrifice stalemate trap!). The Armageddon finish was as exciting as ever with no draws in the 36 games!
Big thanks to Alex McFarlane for this weekend - as always he was fantastic. Also thanks to everyone who played and supported the event.
