Hive Fair Play Cup 2024: 

Congrats to the Hungarian Hive Club!

After a very tense last round, one of the teams of the Hungarian Hive Club emerged victorious in the Hive Fair Play Cup 2024, the team tournament organised (by the same club!) since 2022.

Tied with the same score (5/6) but second by Buchholz tie-break was the British team Fish and Chips! And with only half a point less (4.5) the third place went to the Eastern European Borscht.

The powerful American teams Tamanduas and The Buzz Kills got 4 and 3.5 respectively, confirming the level of competition this year was higher than ever!

Thanks to all the 19 teams for participating and see you next year in January for a new edition!

Full results can be found here.
