Bunkers jamboree 2005

Neil Graham

To mark the opening night of the Bunkers Chess Club at their new venue of The Rose of England, Mansfield Road, Nottingham, the club hosted a three-way competition with Gambit and Ashfield. The format was a 10 board Jamboree with two rapidplay games; 30 minutes on the clock each.

In Round One Gambit took a huge lead, with scores Gambit 8; Ashfield 3½; Bunkers 3½, and although Round Two was a much closer affair (Ashfield 5½; Gambit 5; Bunkers 4½), the first round proved decisive; final scores: Gambit 13; Ashfield 9; Bunkers 8.
