Victory!

Congratulations to Frank, who won the 8th Europchess rapid tournament in the final playoff against József Barta and Christophe Keller!

The players used a unique format to decide the winner which can be described as a 6 boards parallel clock-simultaneous game. Each player played on four boards (two blacks and two whites) against two opponents all at the same time. The time control was 20’+10″ and of course all six clocks have started at the same time. There was lot of fun for the spectators and for the players as well. The final results are as follows:

1. Frank 3.0 / 4

2. Christophe 2.5 / 4

3. Jozsef 0.5 / 4

Frank – Jozsef 1 – 0

Jozsef – Frank 0 – 1

Frank – Christophe 1 – 0

Christophe – Frank 1 – 0

Jozsef – Christophe 0 – 1

Christophe – Jozsef 1/2 – 1/2

Three players, six boards parallel clock-simultan
