Paul was our D'Artagnan drawing two games. Ed had a stone cold draw against GM Gawain Jones but got suckered into a knight and rook mating net. I had good positions in all three games which were interesting but blundered.
Paul Northcott drew both games he played - with FIDE Master Harry Grieve and International Master Nigel Povah.
An event with 125 boards stretching right down the high street. Congratulations Guildford Chess Club on staging such a great event.
All the masters taking part...

Ex-Emsworth Chess Club player Paul Cooper was assisting IM Matthew Wadsworth. Unfortunately, I only saw that after the event.
Somehow we missed each other, but it was busy!

Feeling happy after winning outright the amateur section of the Golder's Green rapidplay chess.
