It was great to be back as part of the Mind Sports Olympiad and their line-up this year, as with the recent changes to the app we were able to facilitate the tournament online.
It was a very different feel to the event than being in the room with people, with the usual buzz of people frantically engaged in the game replaced by the laptop’s fan. On the plus side it meant some players who could not normally make the event were able to participate and we had our highest turn-out so far!
Increased accessibility meant there was some tough competition for the top spot, with many hard-fought matches.
In the end, Saravanan Sathyanandha took the title of Colour Chess World Champion 2021, followed closely by Natasha Regan and Maciej Brzeski. Congratulations!
