Brian Dudley Memorial Chess Tournament

Stourbridge chess club held the first Brian Dudley memorial blitz chess tournaments in memory of the club’s former president and county champion Dr Brian Dudley on August 29th 2018.
Players were invited from neighbouring clubs to participate in either a junior or an adult tournament. Both tournaments had a fast time control of 10 minutes per person per game.

The final results were a clean sweep for Stourbridge even though only a quarter of the participants were Stourbridge players.

Main tournament

The main tournament had thirty entrants and was originally intended to be a 7 round Swiss tournament. After three rounds father and son Nic and Jeremy Fallowfield shared the lead on 3 out of 3. They were playing each other in a potentially decisive game in the fourth round when there was a power failure and play had to be stopped!  Fortunately, the power came back on after 25 minutes and play resumed but this meant the tournament had to be cut to 6 rounds in order to be completed on time.  In the end maturity and experience triumphed over youth with Nic winning his fourth round tie against his higher rated son.
After 6 rounds, Nic won the tournament with 5.5 points winning 5 games and drawing one against Kidderminster’s third placed Joseph Friar.  Jeremy Fallowfield who now plays for Shirley and Wythall finished second on five points.
Stourbridge’s Hossam Aboushady took the Under-145 prize on 4 points, and Jeremy Humphries the Under-125 on 3.5 points. 

Junior tournament

The junior tournament was a five round round robin and was won by Stourbridge’s Ethan Chan Smith on a perfect 5 point score.  Kidderminster’s  Cameron Henry came second.
