Success at Warwickshire Open Championships

Some of our juniors were sent to Coventry to take on a large field of Midlands players at the end of February

In the Open section, Jonah Willow was impressive, scoring 3.5/5 and losing only in the last round to GM Mark Hebden. He finished joint 3rd and shared a grading prize. Anita Somton had a tougher time, scoring 1pt.

In the Major (U170) Adam Bennett secured draws against higher rated opponents to finish on 2/5.

Finally in the Intermediate (U145), Armaan Gogia was in contention for a prize until the last round, scoring 3/5 to finish =6th.

Everyone had a good time with some fine chess played throughout.
