Young Chelsea Half Marathon April 2019—Report

YC Half Marathon April 2019—winners Petar Ivanov & Stefano Tommasini YC Half Marathon April 2019—winners Petar Ivanov & Stefano Tommasini

The Young Chelsea held a 12‑hour half marathon on Saturday 27 April. The event was cross‑IMPed over three sessions and a total of 91 deals. Fourteen pairs took part. (The number would doubtless have been higher had the event not clashed with the regional final of the Garden Cities inter‑county teams‑of‑eight, in which a YC team represented London.)

 

Congratulations to the convincing winners Petar Ivanov & Stefano Tommasini who finished on 182.50 IMPs. They were in front after the first session and stretched out their lead over the course of the event. They picked up the £250 first prize.

 

The overall ranking and individual session results are on Pianola:

 

 

 

 

In second place, getting £100, were Neeraj Tanna & Claire Robinson on 105.50 IMPs.

 

And in third place, getting £50, were David Kendrick & Victor Milman on 81.53 IMPs.

 

Thanks to Margaret & Martin Nygren for their generous sponsorship of the entry fees of the junior players, to David Muller for devising the movement and donating his time as tournament director, and to the staff at the club for their work behind the scenes keeping the contestants fed and watered.
