Last Sunday night, while most of us in the UK were fast asleep, BMAB Grandmaster and former UKBGF Team Captain Tim Cross won the LA Open – online this year because of the Covid-19 pandemic – and (as far as we know) he is the first UK player to win an ABT event. Both the first 11 point match, which Tim lost, and the 9 point decider of this double-elimination contest can be watched here on YouTube, with commentary by Victor Ashkenazi, Ben Friesen and Steve Sax, starting at about 5h 26m.
