Our intention is to make these tournaments an integral part of the British chess calendar, with the aim of giving much-needed Fide-rated games to players. Many of Kingston’s own players will be invited to play in this series of tournaments, pitting them against other strong players from the local leagues and beyond. The inaugural tournament in July 2022 was won by Kingston star Peter Lalić. The second tournament in July 2023 was won by Conor Murphy. For the details, see the full tournament reports below.
