8 of us entered the Rapidplay on Sunday and two of us won shares of grading prizes.
Florian was the star performer in the Open section, winning a third share of the U185 grading prize with 4 points from his 6 games after losing to GM Mark Hebden in the final round.
Drag won a fifth share of the U170 grading prize with 3 points even though he was 25th seed out of 29 players.
Tom scored 3.5 points and had to play against IM Ameet Ghasi who is a bit of a Rapidplay specialist and won the Open section with 6 out of 6, including a win over Mark Hebden.
Pete M began well with 1.5 out of 2, including a win over Eric Gibbon 196 (who Drag probably should have at least drawn with) but then it all fell away, including a loss to Central’s Mark Radford who also won a fifth share of the U170 grading prize.
Mike N scored 3.5 points in the Major section. He was in contention for a prize but lost in the final round.
In the Intermediate section Mick H, Graham & Maggie scored 4, 3.5 & 2 points respectively.
