Finally the June congress draws to a close and it was a wonderful weekend of chess! After the countless games of chess (well, it is countable if you take the time… ), minor incidents, a few “handbags at dawn” and various other moments, a great weekend was had by all.
Amid all of the amazing games and results, one result stands above the rest – Pat Coleman with a perfect 6/6. He started round 1 from Table 1 and never left if all weekend (“Its my TABLE!!!!“). Well done Pat on a fantastic result.
The results are as follows:
1st Carl Jackson
2nd – Colm Daly & Paul Wallace
Grading prize: Shahram Nikrow & John Loughran
1st Pat Coleman
2nd – Gavin Doyle, Agnieszka Pozniak & Martin Kelly
