The Inaugural NSCC Blitz

The inaugural Individual and Team Blitz were held at The King’s School, Grantham on Saturday 18th March 2017. Five-minute chess has long been popular but with the advent of digital clocks and increments, games of three minutes plus two seconds a move are possible with fast, furious and fun results! Both the Individual Blitz held in the morning and the Team Blitz which took place in the afternoon led to exciting chess played in a very good spirit with very few interventions necessary for the arbiters, Phill Beckett, Oliver Graham and John Swain. Under Blitz rules, once the clock is pressed, an illegal move can end the game, providing the opponent notices! [more]
