Rookie Rivals Pairings
Battersea Chess Club sponsored by Bishop's Move

The entries are in and the draw is made – now the inaugural Rookie Rivals tourny is ready to start.

There are 16 names signed up to play, with 8 first round matches in a draw split into two halves.

So, without further ado, here are the first round matches:

Caspar Jones Vs Dominic Palgan
Richard Murphy Vs Gregg Hutchence
Joel Morales (118) Vs Seif Al-Hairi
Denis Dupuis (98) Vs Peter Dirmauskas (118)

Boris Stoyanov (112) Vs Theo Wait
Tim Valentine (129) Vs Arnold Hunt (126)
Claira Moro Vs Peter Yusoff (14)
Edwin Magombe Vs Lawrence Cook

Remember – it is up to the players to work out with their opponents when to play.

We suggest the first match takes place on Tuesday, but if that isn’t possible it can be rearranged between the players.
