Second Knights Tour is a Success!

We followed up last year’s successful inaugural Knights’ Tour with another terrific event.
32 players, an appropriate number for anybody chess minded, did battle at The Athenaeum, RAC, Oxford & Cambridge and Reform in a peripatetic competition of rapid chess matches, followed by dinner at The Reform.
For the record I believe the scores, someone please correct me if I am wrong, were:
Team 3 (Capablanca) 2.5
Team 4 (Morphy) 2
Team 1 (Chigorin) 1
Team 2 (Tal) 0.5
