A respectable 14 players took part in the Blitz event and all thoroughly enjoyed the 2 hour event. 14-year old Jack Mizzi was in a class of his own by winning all the games of the 9-round tournament. The closest who came from talking half a point was Nina who opted to try for more when a repetition seemed on the board. Malta Champion Jake Darmanin ended 2nd – 1 point behind. His only loss – the 98-mover against Jack. Novak Robert ended 3rd. The longest game of the tournament was his first round game against Matthias that lasted 100 moves and ended in a draw. Many endgame situations resulted in this game and each were played very well from both players.
The first 6 players win Grand Prix points. 4th-6th were taken by Matthias Gatt, Nina Thornton and Matteo Stagno.
