Simultaneous Tournament Result

Last night (5th September), we held a very pleasurable simultaneous event with Lorin D’Costa. Lorin played against 17 of our members and won all 17 games. Congratulations to Yuri Hamano who was the last man standing after 2.5 hours. Also, a special mention to our junior member Gabriele Palmer who was the penultimate man standing. Gabriele resigned a few minutes before Yuri.
