Lightning tournament at sk mitwitz: pfadenhauer wins again

There were no major surprises at the internal christmas blitz tournament at the mitwitz chess club. All players were challenged in the blitz tournament – a special form of the royal game with only five minutes of playing time per player and game.

Narrow victory

Last year’s winner, uwe pfadenhauer, won by a narrow but well-deserved margin with six points out of seven. Closely followed by friedrich burger, who performed strongly and only suffered one defeat.

Third place was shared by willibald zitzmann, who was on the rise, and hubert konradi, who was expected to do even better.

Chairman gerhard kohles had to make do with fifth place. Erich pfeiffer and frank endrich took seventh place together, followed by monika huttinger, the only lady in the field of eight.

Uwe pfadenhauer, the tournament director, steered the tournament with aplomb, and gerhard kohles, the club chairman, conducted the prize-giving ceremony. According to kohles, the donation made (win: 2 euros, draw: 1.50 euros) will be donated to a charitable cause yet to be determined. Then the chess players of the SK mitwitz love to review the past year 2019.
