The annual Christmas quickplay tournament had an entry of 15 players. The handicap format gives everyone a chance no matter what your rating. There were quite a few games where the lower rated player won out. In the end there was a 4 way tie for 1st place between Utkarsh Gupta, Sergey Beryozkin, John Lacy and Paul Cassidy. It was a fun and enjoyable tournament and every participant took home a prize.
