Ladder

This post was produced by Bill as an email. It has been edited for the website by Tim.

Well, we had our first Chess Ladder get together at the Haydonian Club last night and many thanks to all who came along. Drew put together what seemed to be a very workable set of rules for us and organised things most smoothly, having come armed with everything necessary, including a 7-sided die and a 20-sided die (I would have said “dice” but he insists that is the plural).

The format was 3 x 25 minute Rapidplay games, with the intention that we hold 2 more similar evenings, probably in January or February and then in March or April. Unfortunately with nine of us there i meant that someone had to drop out of each round but we will keep track of these byes and those players won’t be asked to drop out again if we have odd numbers.

The game results are attached including the ladder positions beginning with the random draw and at the completion of each round. Anyone else is free to join in either or both of the next sessions and will simply join the ladder at the bottom.
