Shropshire Congress 2013

Stuart and Derek both played in  the Shropshire Congress in Telford last weekend. I won't embarrass them by telling you their scores but suffice it to say that they didn't need to hang around for the prize giving !!!  The picture below is of Derek playing Stuart in the final round. I'm told that a grandmaster draw was agreed after about a dozen moves so that they could go home early. The photographer obviously took one look at Stuart and decided to cut him out of the photo, although Derek is no oil painting himself.
