Congratulations to Barclays A who started in eighth position after Round One, two slots below Barclays B, and ended in the Prime Position, winners of the London Banks Chess League Swiss Tournament 2011 - 2012
John Skipworth, Tournament Controller, pointed out that the top five teams, top half indeed, ended within four points of each other, the second and third positions being in doubt until the last game finished. The lower half was also within four points apart from Barclays C which started late.
John also announced that he will be moving out of London before the start of the next season so this is likely to be his last appearance here. However, there is a distict possibility that through the modern miracle that is the internet, he may still be able to be Tournament Controller.
We wish him well and thank him for all the work done over the years, being Controller is sometimes not easy!! Thanks John.
