Newcastle Congress

Four of us played in the Newcastle Congress over the weekend. Max and Glyn played in the U160 Section and, unfortunately, failed to set the world alight. Max finished on 1.5/5 and Glyn on 2.5/5. Ernie and I played in the U130 Section. Ernie finished on 2/5, although it should have been 2.5/5 as he generously gave his opponent a draw in the 4th round whilst a piece up. I finished joint 2nd with a score of 3.5/5, although I should probably done better as I played appallingly badly in the 4th round.
