Our first OTB meetup

After long months of online chess, we finally got the opportunity to play over the board and meet in person.

About 16 players showed up to play this mini tournament.

On Tuesday 28.09.2021 we held a small chess tournament at ETH. The 16 players that showed up where of very different levels (from beginner to FM) but all found players to their level and enjoyed the 7-round blitz tournament (5+3, swiss system). Congratulations to Noah for winning without losing a single game and only drawing once 😵 !

Thanks to everybody that tuned in, especially to Philipp who booked a room for us despite the spontaneity of the event. We’re looking forward to organising further similar (free) events during this semester.

Final ranking. The top 3 players received a small prize.
