Member Organisations Team Tournament in for a close finish!

Neil Limbert  Monday, January 30, 2017

The 2nd Welsh Member Organisations Team Tournament, which began in December 2015, has a very exciting finish in store. With only 5 games remaining (out of 105 initially), there are still three teams in with a shout at victory: BCCA Cougars, SCCA "A" and BCCA Wildcats. The tournament crosstable can be seen here: https://www.iccf.com/event?id=56581 This tournament, provided free by the WCCF, has provided some excellent chess and there is no reason why this event should not get stronger every year.
