A Clash of the Titans in this year’s Gambit and Counter Gambit Tourneys!

Results I’ve been eagerly awaiting!  Russell Sherwood has dominated both these e-mail events in recent years. Likewise Derek Gallimore has dominated the postal sections of these events over many years. With the closure of the postal section this year, however, Derek entered the e-mail tourneys thus offering new and strong opposition for Russell. So who would take the honours this year? It could not be closer!

Congratulations to the Titans and to the other competitors who played their necessary part in deciding the outcome.
