Parsons Cup lightning trophy

Lightning tournaments are held at the start and end of the season where moves are made on a 10-second buzzer, and a blitz clock tournament (3 minutes + 2-second increment) the week before Christmas.

To determine the overall winner of the Parsons Cup, everyone's best two performances (as a percentage score) are added together to give a total score.
