Despite Paul’s rather downbeat summary below, I found the games of great interest – thanks to him – better luck next year!
Other Bedford entrants:-
- Ben Cox U14, 2.5/7
- Toby Cox U12, 3.5/7
- Lucian Cox U10, 3/7
- David Cox U120 grade, 2/5
Well done to all – it’s not at all easy competing at this level. The results were very respectable and I’m sure much was learnt with which you can crush Bedford League players next season!
My best chance of a win since the first round but I could not quite convert it and allowed a perpetual check. Finishing on 3.5/7, =19th out of 52, when I was ranked 17th is hardly a surprise. However, it was a poor result overall because I played only one higher ranked opponent. Steve Berry and Roger Emerson tied first on 5.5/7 sharing £600.
Thanks for the interest.
