Bolton Rapidplay, December 2023

 

This 3-section 6-round one-day rapidplay was held on Sunday 3rd December, 2023, at the Ukranian Social Club, Castle Street, Bolton, with the familiar names of Rod Middleton, Julian Clissold and David Clayton cited as those of the main organisers involved.

 

Deciding the cut-offs for rating-controlled sections can be tricky at the planning stage.  On this occasion the three sections had 20, 24 and 63 entrants respectively, advertised in advance, so maybe the third section’s cut-off might better have been lower, or maybe four sections might have been better than three.  These things are of course unfathomable before the event.  As things turned out, the actual number of participants, excluding “no shows”, was about 99, suggesting that maybe some entrants withdrew at the last minutes on account of the snow.

 

Final round-by-round cross-tables for the three sections were as follows.
