As ever there was a great Berkshire turn out at the West of England Congress held in Swindon. 14 players across 6 different tournament sections.
Although we had no first places there were two 2nd=, a 3rd= and 2 4th=. Plus best girl prizes for Zoe Goodwin and Louise Head in their sections. The highlight for Louise was playing the leader of the U9 tournament on the top board in the last match, who was unbeatable at that stage, and beating him in 9 moves!
In the Open section there was a huge upset in the first round when George Tunstall (the 21st seed) beat the 2nd seed player in a game that took nearly all of the 3 hours available. With an unbeaten record over the weekend George finished 4= and received a controllers prize for his first round game.
A sociable weekend at a wonderful venue. I'm sure most of us will be back again next year!
