Gonzaga win NCC, Ballinasloe among ECC qualifiers.

Gonzaga won their third national club championship in a row at the weekend at the National Club Championships in Athlone. Dublin City chess club came second. Well done to Ballinasloe who for the first time will be among Ireland’s representatives at the European Club Cup, which takes place in Rhodes, Greece later this year, after finishing third. The Irish Chess Union website has a link to results on chess results server.

Gonzaga win NCC, Maze wins blitz

Gonzaga had a clean sweep at the weekend winning all 4 of their matches to finish in clear first place in the National Club Championships. The other qualifying places went to St Benildus and Trinity.

Top seed Sebastian Maze recovered from a loss to Killian Delaney to take the Mind Sports blitz event by just a half point, with Delaney in second and Stephen Moran in third.

National Club Championships 2017

The Irish Mind Sports Championships Blitz event is taking place tonight in Dublin. Its 4 rounds in and Killian Delaney is already demonstrating his formidable blitz skills as he is the only player on 4 out of 4. Those results include a win over the top seed GM Maze. The Irish Chess Union website is carrying live updates from the event. Still 5 more rounds to go in that event.

The National Club Championships gets underway tomorrow and it should be a good event. I’m sure there will be results updates on the ICU website if not live games.

National Club Championships and Irish Championships 2017

Details received from John McMorrow re the upcoming National Club Championships which are being held in the Gresham Hotel, Dublin next weekend 4th and 5th March. Running alongside the NCC is the Irish Mind Sports Championship for U1600 players. On the Friday night the Irish Mind Sports Championships blitz event will take place. Its a 9 round 3 minute +2 sec aside event with a good prize fund. Looks like an excellent line up of events for the weekend.

John also sent on details of this years Irish Championships which are returning to Limerick for the first time since 2013. The venue will be the Savoy Hotel which is a great location for the tournament. Round times have been changed from 2pm to 3pm and the event is already shaping up to be a strong one.

Brochure for Irish Championships 2017 – Apparently the venue for this years Irish has changed to the West County in Ennis owing to lack of availability in the Savoy. Obviously good news for any Ennis chess players, I think its the first time Ennis has hosted the Irish.
