Vignir Vatnar won the blitz tournament

As usual during the Uppsala Young Champions, a blitz tournament was played on Sunday evening. Jón Úlfur and Lisa took care of the event and 42 participants played 11 exciting rounds. Most of the players are also participants in the “big” tournament, but several local players took the chance to measure their strength with the young stars.
