No less than four Seaton players are featuring in the Semi-Finals of the DCCA Online Winter Grand Prix. 

The Grand-Prix ran between 18th January and 26 February 2021, and incorporating six 9+3 Rapid and six 5+2 Blitz events. A player’s “Grand-Prix score” was calculated based on a player's best three results in both styles of event. The final standings can be found here.

We are now in the Semi-Final knock-out stage with Paul Hampton and Jon Underwood competing in the Championship and Steve Dean and Charlie Keen in the Graded (U160) event.
