Club Lightning Tournament

Entrants are divided into groups of about 8-10 players so that the groups are of even strength. The groups then play off. The leaders in each group advance to the final. The final should have approximately 6-9 players.

Participants have 5 minutes each for their games. This event is currently held after the Metro Open.

Aggregate points are awarded for performance in-group play.


2016 Club Lightning Tournament


For this year the Club Lightning was held as a Swiss Tournament.

Congratulations to: Ihsan Ferozkohi - 2016 Metro Club Lightning Champion
