We were a bit down on numbers for the tournament on Saturday. There has been a request to look at some sort of handicap system for the lower group. Weaker players are a bit over-awed by the rank differences as generally it is our stronger players who take part.
Congatulations to:
- Victor for winning the tournament.
- Ben Bredenkamp on winning group 2 and gaining promotion to 4k
- Chris (1k) on his upset against Konrad (2d).

This was SAGA’s final internet tournament for 2010. The results after 3 rounds were:
1. Victor Chow
2-4. Andrew Davies, Sam Scott, Chris Welsh
5-7. Konrad Scheffler, Steve Kroon, David Gale,
8. Lloyd Rubidge
9. Ben Bredenkamp
10. Alexander du Plessis
11. Gordon Wells

Here are some interesting stats from all four internet tournaments this year for group1. It shows each person’s tally of wins, with the number of games played in brackets.
7 wins: Konrad (12), Andrew (12)
6 wins: Victor (6), Chris W (12)
5 wins: Ben G (6), Sam (9)
