EDINBURGH CHESS CONGRESS: Fri 6th -Sun 8th April 2018
Results for the Edinburgh Congress were slow in coming but here are the outcomes for our members:
In the Premier Tournament Declan’s fine result is probably well-known by now – 4/5, second equal, tournament rating 2380, East of Scotland Champ and the Junior prize. Great performance. Also in the Premier and also having a good weekend was Ben Volland – 2½/5, tournament rating 1877, starting rank 61 of 63, finishing position 38.
In the Bishops Subhayu must be pleased – 3/5, a grading performance of +333 finishing 9/44 from a starting rank of 25;
Ray Flood got a decent return of points (3/5) but a slight dip in grading points;
In the Knights Marten Katz ended 2½/5 but will be disappointed that the grading result was no so good. However his only loss was to an (new) ungraded player who had a 1458 performance at Perth and 1389 here.
Well done all.
