Joint 3rd for Anita at Shropshire Congress

Anita Somton was undefeated on 3.5/5 in the Major section of the event of the new year, held from 4th - 6th January at Telford.

Unfortunately her final round victory was against Lavanya Maladkar, who also had a great tournament beating some strong opponents, and finished on 2.5. Ritika Maladkar also played, scoring 1.5/5. Kian Chan competed in the Minor and finished on 1pt.

Another fine result was from Shabir Okhai in the Open, who finished on 3pts including a win against GM Mark Hebden!

Full results are on the Shropshire Chess website. Well done to Anita on another impressive result!
