In our strongest ever blitz tournament, Constantin became the first player to win three tournaments in a single season, but it wasn’t enough to stop Dylan becoming the first player to take the Blitz Grand Prix trophy home twice.
A reminder that the final round of our 2017 Blitz Grand Prix is on tonight, with the usual rules and starting time (8pm). Prizes will be given out afterwards.
Gonzaga again took the honours in our 2017 charity blitz, though Conor O’Donnell FM was felled in his bid for a fourth successive title on a night which saw €680 raised for the Samaritans and the Simon Community, and the one and only Frank Scott honoured on his birthday.
Well done to Ben Murray, whose St Mary’s Haddington Road team won the newly-revived Interprovincial Primary Schools title in Gonzaga last weekend!
St Mary’s finished on 23½ points, 7½ points clear of nearest rivals St Conleth’s, after dropping just half a point over the weekend.
There’s ten Benildus players taking part in the Leinster championships in Malahide this weekend. Five are in the top section – Mel, Tim, Constantin, Zdravko and Mihailo, and all are seeded in the first round. Two are playing in the middle section – William and Seán, who between them won the bottom section and a grading prize in this section last year. And Danny, Bhudhav and Ben are competing in the bottom section.
You can keep track of all the results here. Best of luck to all!
