The New Britain Chess Club Odds Blitz Chess Champions

Starting in 2010, the NBCC began holding "odds blitz chess tournaments," where higher-rated players give time odds to lower-rated players in order to provide greater winning chances for the underdogs. Even though some of our resident masters have won these events, despite the odds, there have been a few class players who have earned first place, edging out the masters, in these fun tournaments.
